JoAnn is actively supporting St. Jude Children’s every year so this post will showcase each year’s activity. Hopefully some of them will suit your fancy!
Warm Head, Warm Heart in 2020
Starting December 1, 2020, JoAnn is providing a free take-home hat-making kit so you can make a hat to that will be gifted to a St. Jude patient.
Due to the coronavirus, they are not hosting an on-site event this year so please call ahead to your local store to ensure they have kits on-hand before stopping by.
Also, be sure to ask if your local JoAnn will accept handmade hats made without their kits if you have a stash of yarn just waiting to be used.
Here are some knit and crochet patterns JoAnn offers for this project.
If you are in search of some fun, new hat patterns, here is a Pinterest board that is sure to offer something fun!
Getting the NYE Party Started in 2019
Are you looking for a fun activity to do with the kids while also getting some crafty shopping in? This year, JOANN is hosting an event in certain locations on December 7th, 2019 to make party poppers (shown below) to donate to St. Jude.
You can learn more about what they’re doing in addition to the in-store event to support St. Jude’s on the JOANN website.
If you cannot attend the event but still want to make the holiday poppers to donate to a different cause, they provide a tutorial on how to make a pull-apart holiday popper.
