Last Friday, Berroco announced via our various social media channels that we were going to donate all of the profit from the sale of PDF patterns sold via Ravelry and Berroco.com to the Houston Food Bank. Our friends from Amano Yarns joined us as well.
The Houston Food bank’s mission is to end Hunger in the greater Houston area- a food bank provides food to families in need via food pantries, back pack programs for school age children, soup kitchens and meal sites- for every dollar that they receive the Houston Food bank can provide 3 meals, or to put it another way they can feed one person for 1 day.
We are so thrilled to share that you raised $2500—which Berroco has decided to match—for a total donation of $5000 for Houston. Thank you so much to everyone who bought patterns, helped spread the word and thank you to everyone who volunteers at their own local food bank or pantry.
