Community Purls


A Local Knitting Program Delivering Warmth Close to Home

Community Purls:

Take a stitch and give the gift of warmth and hope to the most vulnerable members of our Chautauqua County community. Thousands of women, men, and children need our help to stay warm as summer temperatures drop to winter's icy chill. Help us respond to these requests so everyone in our community can enjoy a warmer, happier winter.
