Wool-Aid Helps Children in Alaska

Wool-Aid is working with a small school district in Alaska that serves a group of seven very remote villages on the Yukon River in central Alaska. The winters are extremely cold there, dipping to –60 degrees on some days! Snows begin at the end of October and continue through April.

We are being asked to help about 50 students who are in pre-K, kindergarten, and first grade. These are children 4 to 7 years old who need our warm woolens to keep them warm when they are playing outside at school.

Wool-Aid will be sending hats, mittens, and socks in all colors — especially bright ones!
