This Association is based at the offices of Volunteer Nanaimo, E – 3148 Barons Rd, Nanaimo. Volunteer Nanaimo acts as liaison between VICKA and knitters in the Nanaimo community receiving donations of knitted items including children’s clothing, scarves, gloves, etc. and blanket squares which VICKA collects on a regular basis. The squares are sewn together to form blankets which are distributed to the needy in wintertime, and the children’s clothing is also donated to those families who need them. VICKA also provides donated wool to their community knitters as and when received.
