Volunteer Knitters Wanted

Hand Knitted Caps

When the public thinks of Afghanistan or any of the mid-eastern countries, the common perception is that it is always quite hot. The reality is they can have 60 degree swings in a day from extreme heat to extreme cold. Among a cornucopia of useful items, we make every effort to include a hand-knit cap in each of their boxes.

If you can knit and wish to help, please contact Margie Kankrlik at 406-924-9512 or adoptasox@gmail.com for more info. If you are local to the Bozeman area and can pick it up, Adopt A Sox will supply the yarn! Unfortunately, shipping the yarn to volunteers out of the area isn't economically practical.

Is Sewing your Talent?

Included in each of our boxes is a handmade neck-cooler and a handmade pillow case.  If you can sew, cut fabric, and/or iron and would like to help, please contact Margie at 406-924-9512 or adoptasox@gmail.com

Handmade Note Cards

Local crafters make blank note cards to include in our boxes. These cards allow troops to send special greetings back home without having to go to the PX.
