The Great Knitting Giveaway

Every year, more than one hundred seniors from GEF Seniors Housing spend countless hours knitting thousands of items for local charities for The Great Knitting Giveaway. Yarn donations are gratefully accepted year-round at two convenient locations in the city so the seniors can continue knitting and help share the warm with organizations who need it the most.

Northside: GEF Central Services, 14220 - 109 Avenue (weekdays, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm).
Southside: Ottewell Place Lodge, 6207 - 92 Avenue
