Wrap With Love has wrapped up for another year

Yesterday morning at 9.30am our special visitors started to arrive at Engadine Library.  Soon we had 45 eager volunteers knitting and sewing furiously to create wraps to send to the millions of people in the world suffering extreme cold.  Apart from our regular Engadine Library Knitting Groups we also had groups from Bundeena and Caringbah, among others, join us.

The Library was decorated in style with wraps draped here and there to inspire and entice, and a welcome sign at the entrance.  With ‘oohs and aahs’ over handiwork, much laughter and cups of tea consumed you might be forgiven for thinking that not much work was done.  But it took several volunteers a good half hour to transport all the wraps to their various cars.  Completed wraps, 10” squares and yarn can be donated at any time to Engadine Library and volunteers will make sure that they get where they need to go.

Starting in 1992 Wrap With Love has sent more than 323,000 wraps to over 75 countries including Australia, all due to the hard work and generosity of volunteers.  Wrap With Love is run by donation and has no regular financial support.  Over 20 aid agencies collect the wraps and make sure that they are sent to those in need.  For more information on this worthwhile cause why not check out their website.
