If you’re not already making knitted or crocheted items for charity, I bet you know someone who does. I have one friend who knits toddler-sized sweaters for children in Africa and another who crochets infant caps for hospitals.

But here’s a new idea I hadn’t seen before: soap sacks for shelters and pantries.

Stacy Wiener developed the crochet pattern (made from cotton yarn) as a way to give a toiletry donation a special touch. The sack can be used as a soap holder and as a washcloth.

Her program, Supporting a Community of Kindness (S.A.C.K.) collects both soap and sacks. She has distributed about 3,000 sacks since the fall of 2016.

If you’re interesting in joining the initiative, you can email Stacy at stac...@comcast.net or connect on Facebook at SACK – Supporting A Community with Kindness.
