Bangor Daily News is getting folks to knit or crochet a 6-inch square from washable yarn, such as cotton or acrylic, and send it to them. They will be sewn together into small blankets and donated to The Animal Orphanage and the Bangor Humane Society to serve as bedding for cats.
The deadline is February, 26th (I know. I should have posted this earlier.) and those who get the squares in before then will have their names entered into a drawing form a couple of books.
