DELIVERY STORIES

Deliveries

We serve a continually expanding community of women, infants, children, teens, and families in local and global areas of suffering, conflict, and marginalization. Honoring our commitment to “do no harm,” we do not compete with local women’s micro-business initiatives. We are dedicated to serving members of local and global communities who are experiencing violence, displacement, economic hardship, homelessness, marginalization, and illness of any kind. Read below for details of our deliveries near and far.

Community Purls (Our local delivery program)

(Community Purls is our local delivery program that honors the vulnerable and marginalized “pearls” in our own communities by delivering requested items that provide comfort, warmth, and hope. Scroll down to the United States in the Deliveries List below to see some specific delivery destinations.)

To participate in our Community Purls program:
1. Identify agencies in your area that serve marginalized, homeless, and vulnerable populations.
2. Contact them by phone or email. Tell them briefly about Knitting4Peace and ask if their recipients would appreciate some of our items.
3. Create the items requested and deliver them. If the agency can use more items than you can create, we will be happy to provide items from our corporate inventory in Denver. Click here and send a message telling us the agency you’ll be delivering to, which items you need, the quantities of each item, and your ship-to address.
4. When your delivery is finished, send us a message detailing what you’ve delivered and the agency to whom you delivered (click here.) We’ll include your delivery in the Community Purls section of our monthly eNewsletter.
