Council partnered with local community houses to offer our community the opportunity to be a part of the Knit one, warm one project.

Knit one, warm one built on the remarkable spirit and goodwill already shown by our community during the COVID-19 pandemic by offering a chance for knitters to help those sleeping rough or struggling financially.

Thank you letter for knits

We received an overwhelming response to the project with hundreds of knitted scarves, beanies, gloves, mittens and blankets donated. This project enabled over 50 experienced knitters, past knitters and new knitters as well as some knitting groups to all band together to help others.

Items have been donated to a number of different agencies across Maroondah including Wellways, Uniting Crisis & Homelessness Service, Maroondah Community Meals programs, Maroondah Supported Residential Services, and the Safer Futures Foundation.

If you have any queries about the Knit one, warm one project please contact Fiona Burridge, Community Development Officer on 9294 5737 or email fiona.burridge@maroondah.vic.gov.au
