Our Current Campaigns

The Great Knitting Giveaway

For 15 years, the Great Knitting Giveaway has connected GEF seniors and local charities through a common desire to help Edmontonians in need. Over 100 talented knitters have given countless hours to create thousands of scarves, toques, blankets, and mitts for charities such as Hope Mission, The Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, Pregnancy Pathways, Operation Friendship Seniors Society, The Salvation Army, and Crystal Kids Youth Centre.
