The aim of this project is to provide handmade crochet scarves to the homeless and deserving in the south side of Chicago. Included with each scarf is an “agape tag” which includes some words of encouragement/scriptures. The vision is simple - for all those who receive a scarf to feel God’s unconditional love and through the use of the agape tags, extend God’s Kingdom through spreading his word. In the near future, the project endeavors to provide thousands of scarves to Chicagoland residents in need, and the ultimate goal is to provide millions and millions of scarves to those in need across the globe.
