The Gimme Shelter Project grew from Michelle Vitale’s work with the homeless and it is to bring awareness to the 16% homeless increase in New Jersey(taken from the Homeless Point In Time Count).
Ms. Vitale has created 8 out of 16 weatherized blankets with the intent to give them away after the full 16 are made. The other 8 have organized Stitch Ins so the community can contribute to the project.
The organized Stitch In will take place on Sunday March 8th
Jersey City City Hall 280 Grove Street from 12 noon to 3pm
