Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Program
SWC NeedleNuts knit, quilt, and crochet blankets, hats, shawls, scarves, fingerless mittens, and afghans throughout the year to provide hand-made warm and cozy items which are presented to programs such as San Diego County domestic violence shelters, etc. Funds and hand-made afghans and booties given to Angels Foster Family Agency assists in the rescue of abused, abandoned, and neglected young children.

Home Life Community Service Program

Hand-made warm and cozy snugly items were presented to the “New Start Blankets” program, a project started by a member over ten years ago.
