Another Spring, another Spring campaign winding down. Here is a peek of two very packing sessions that took place a few days ago in the AFSC basement. Packages were opened, knitwear was admired and sorted, and finally, boxes were filled to the brim, taped shut and stacked up, ready for shipment. All in all, Ann estimates that about 40 big cartons will be sent to Afghanistan this time around.
Volunteers are happier when there are lots of knits to fill those boxes! From left to right, Ann, Amy, Teresa and Emily.
Measurements and guidelines matter! When Amy is not volunteering in the basement, she works for the costume department of the San Francisco Opera.
Among other duties, Annette is in charge of sending notes to those who write with questions.
Laura and Antje take a break from packing to admire two pretty items, a raglan pullover and a ripple afghan both in gorgeous shades of green.
The end result: neat towers of cartons, each holding enough to keep quite a few children and teens warmer next winter. Thank you to all who contribute!
