KnittingNite Raises Funds for Kids Place

The Vermont Law School KnittingNite club recently raised $1,243 for Kids Place, a nonprofit group in Randolph. Club members thanked all those who supported their fund raiser, especially Dean Shirley Jefferson, who provided the yarn used to make dozens of scarves, mittens, hats and other items. Kids Place is a supervised visitation and parenting support group that provides a safe setting for children and non-residential parents to visit and maintain family ties. Kids Place was started in 1999 by Wynona Ward '98, who also founded the nonprofit group Have Justice Will Travel to help battered women and children. Kids Place Director Connie Button, who is a former VLS staff member, was amazed at the generosity of the VLS community, said KnittingNite club members Ann Zagare and Christy Asbee.
