ASID Washington Metro Chapter’s 4th Annual Spread the Warmth project is in full swing! We are collecting new and gently used hats, gloves, scarves and socks that will be distributed to area homeless shelters. Items can also be hand knitted or crocheted (if you would like to help, we have donated yarn we can provide). 

The following locations have collection boxes:

We would also like to invite design firms to participate by placing a box in their office. The items can be donated to a shelter of your choice, or you may contact us to make arrangements for pick up and we will take care of the rest. The program continues through Feb. 28. Please help us spread the warmth to those less fortunate this winter.
