Caron United Yarn to Benefit Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation
(WASHINGTON, N.C.) – Spinrite LP, North America’s largest craft yarn producer, announces their campaign to support Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, whose mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
From every ball of Caron United yarn that is purchased, 15 cents will be donated the foundation.
All proceeds from the Caron United donations will directly benefit students like Meghan Flanigan, whose father was killed in a helicopter crash in 2006. Shortly after, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation reached out to let her know that they were there to help pay her college tuition and room and board at the University of Alabama. With their assistance, Meghan has been able to pursue her dream of studying pre-med without incurring any student loan debt, and every ball of Caron United yarn sold helps support these families and their dreams.
“As a product that is made in America, Caron United is proud to raise awareness and support the mission of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation,” said Ryan Newell, president of Spinrite LP.
“We’re excited to embark on this partnership with our passionate knitting and crocheting community and we hope to inspire a new group of crafters along the way, who are moved by this wonderful cause.”
