Blankets for our Community

 

Wool-Tyme collects yarn and blanket donations for the Ottawa area. We collect blankets for children which are distributed under Project Linus banner and we collect blankets for adults as well. The blankets are given to various charities around Ottawa including women’s shelters, charities for the poor and the homeless, and seniors in nursing homes.

 

Donations (yarn or blankets) must be new material, machine washable and dryable, and be free of odours (e.g. smoke) and pet hair. You can come and join the volunteers from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of every month (at Wool-Tyme, 190 Colonnade Rd S, Ottawa) to sew on tags, piece together squares, or make blankets. Thank you to everyone who has donated yarn, or made squares, blankets, or quilts.
