Knit Your Bit

I happened across this information about the Community Partner Program for the Knit Your Bit project at the WWII Museum in New Orleans. For those who don't know, Knit Your Bit volunteers knit or crochet scarves which are given to veterans across the country. They ONLY accept scarves - no hats, mittens, afghans. Just scarves.

I have met the current coordinator personally and highly recommend this program if you enjoy making scarves and would like to contribute to a great cause.

Here is the address but do read the requirements before mailing. 

The National WWII Museum
Knit Your Bit Campaign
945 Magazine Street

New Orleans, LA 70130

How to participate

You can find patterns on this page but they also accept scarves made with other patterns. You don't have to use these.

There is a FAQ as well:

Here is the quality checklist used for the community partners. This will help you make sure your scarf is sure to make a veteran happy! These are good rules for any scarf donated to any organization!
You can print the pdf to have on hand

Happy crocheting!
