Sandy Goldstein of Los Altos is collecting scarves to help the homeless survive a frigid winter. She’s encouraging knitters to use leftover yarn to make one for her “One Warm Scarf” campaign, which she plans to run through March.
“My friends and local seniors have already donated several scarves that I have delivered to the homeless,” said Goldstein, who also led a 2007 campaign to donate books to children in the Hurricane Katrina disaster. Goldstein has distributed a flier about her new campaign.
She said scarves can be delivered to the Mountain View and Los Altos senior centers or to her Los Altos home. They will then be donated to local homeless shelters.
“I saw this One Warm Coat (program),” Goldstein said. “I thought, ‘What about One Warm Scarf?’”
She’s collected 18 scarves, and the senior centers have started to receive them.
“This is something little, but something I could do,” she said.
Those interested in donating can stop by the Mountain View Senior Center (266 Escuela Ave.), Los Altos Senior Center (97 Hillview Ave.), the Goldstein home (2270 Sierra Ventura Drive, Los Altos) or the Goldman Home (1104 Ana Privada, Mountain View).
