About Webster Warmth

In 2005, Holly Hubenschmidt, head of Instruction, Liaison, & Reference Services in the Webster University Library, coordinated a project in support of the Orphan Foundation of America. Groups on the main campus in St. Louis and the Kansas City campus made red scarves which were donated for Valentine’s Day care packages for college students coming out of foster care and entering college. The following year a different charitable recipient was chosen for the donated crafts.

Eventually the annual project was named “Webster Warmth” and became an official Webster Works Worldwide project for faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends who knit, crochet, quilt and sew. Since then hundreds of handmade items have been donated to agencies in the St. Louis area as well as other locations in the U.S.
