ARC is a non-profit, non-denominational, non-governmental organization committed to advancing the welfare of human rights refugees and abused animals. We aspire to give hope and comfort to those in desperate circumstances by sending hand-knitted hats, scarves, mittens, socks, blankets, and sweaters to shelters throughout the United States and abroad.
Through new, hand-knitted items, ARC aspires to alleviate the suffering of refugees en route to liberating themselves in sub-zero temperatures. Warm items insulate and preserve body heat, increasing the likelihood of their survival. Abused animals feel safer and calmer when they can nestle in snug knits. The difference a warm hat or cozy bed can make is the difference we strive to make – one stitch at a time.
