Help make a house a home by donating a knit blanket.
In partnership with United Way of Greater Los Angeles, PATH (People Assisting the Homeless) will be placing 300 homeless individuals in permanent housing by the end of June. Tanya Aguiniga, an Artist in Residence at Dwell on Design, is helping create 75 move-in-kits for newly housed individuals. The kits will contain a number of items including a modular stool, a side table, wall art, and, of course, a knit blanket.
Tanya needs your help! She is hoping to include one knit blanket in every move-in-kit that is created. She is looking for knitters that would like to donate blankets. There are no parameters for the size of the blankets, or restrictions on material. All Tanya asks is that you mail in your hand-knit blanket by June 10th to:
DoD Move-in Kits
3245 Casitas Ave. Suite 110
Los Angeles, CA 90039
Please include a small note or card with your name on it so the recipient can know who made it.
Dwell on Design will take place June 21-23, 2013 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, during this time Tanya’s participants will be fabricating the components of the move-in-kits with audience participation. If you will be sending in a blanket or if you are interested in more information about Dwell on Design, please email Tanya@aguinigadesign.com
