Scarf It Up For Those In Need has been in operation since 2003, starting with 6 women making 500 scarves and delivering them to 3 agencies who serve the poor and needy. In 2008 Scarf It Up saw an increase in the number of people in need, and wanted to provide hats & gloves to go with our handmade scarves. To meet this increasing need more funds needed to be raised. So in January 2009 Scarf It Up became a program of Shoulder To Shoulder Inc., giving us a non-profit status to allow us to raise more funds. Shoulder To Shoulder is a 501© 3 corporation organized to relieve the destructive pressures of living in poverty for as many of its victims as possible.
In 2017 Scarf It Up gathered almost 11,000 handmade scarves and raised enough funds to purchase hats & a pair of gloves to go with each one. We distributed them to agencies that serve the poor and needy in Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Grant, Pendleton, and Butler counties in Kentucky, several agencies in Indiana. This year Scarf It Up will no longer be taking individual scarf requests all scarves will be distributed during October & December coat drives.
Ohio - Free Store Food Bank & St. Vincent De Paul
Kentucky- St.Vincent De Paul & Mental Health of America Christmas Day Dinner.
It takes thousands of volunteers to make the amount of scarves needed each year. We depend on a variety of groups and individuals to make them such as Girl Scouts, church groups, banks, employee community service hours, Cub Scouts and many many more.
Scarf It Up is a 100% volunteer donation based organization.
