Bundeena's Wrapped with Love
Sunday, 13 October 2013
A local Bundeena group is showing it's love for those in need.
Wrap with Love Inc. is a non-profit volunteer organisation that distributes woollen wraps in Australia and overseas via various bona fide Aid Agencies.
Volunteers knit or crochet squares 25cm x 25cm which are then sewn together into a wrap, measuring 1m x 1.7m, and sent to a warehouse in Alexandria for packing and distribution. Since its inception in 1992 323,648 wraps have been distributed!
The Bundeena Group of Wrap with Love meets once a month on a Monday 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Morning tea and lots of chatting help us knit faster and put a lot of squares together! Many of the group members who cannot attend meetings knit, crochet and/or sew wraps together at home. We also receive extra squares from the depot enabling us to put even more wraps together. Last year the Bundeena Group sent off 101 wraps and this year we have already completed 106!!
