commuknity cares... is the outreach branch of our knitting and yarn shop in San Jose, California. As such, it is part of our larger commitment to give to our community. Through commuknity cares... we provide products and services that create awareness, support and nurturance to others in the local and global community. We are interested in fostering community involvement in a variety of charitable causes through our programs. We also support local and global charities through benefits and partnering with other charitable organizations to further the aims of worthy causes. We do this through activities such as knitting and crocheting, knit alongs, knitlit discussion groups, book signings, benefits, direct financial donations, teaching mindfulness and healing presence through knitting and other person to person contact.
We encourage our customers and other members of the community to become involved in the spirit of giving through the many ongoing and special event activities we sponsor at the store. We have a Donation Station where customers are encouraged to drop off yarn to be used for creating items such as caps, blankets, and scarves for those less fortunate in our community and around the world. Through volunteer activities, we offer knitters and crocheters a place to come and participate in serving others.
commuknity cares... is involved in many charitable activities but chooses to focus its outreach program on a specific cause several times a year.
