Moose Mart in Kemptville is asking for donations of yarn to help out a local man. Kyle, a community fixture, can often be found in front of B&H Grocer and Jonsson’s Independent selling knitted items.

Moose Mart owner Kevin Poulin saw the original post about collecting donations for Kyle on a swap and sell Facebook group. He decided to re-post it and turn his business into a drop-off site.

The post reads: ‘Kyle is a wonderful member of the Kemptville community. 31 year old Kyle is funny, resilient, and friendly and is a brilliant crochet artist (his mom taught him when he was 4). Kyle has overcome many physical challenges and is on a very fixed income and needs to sell his work in order to buy more yarn.’

Poulin says Kyle uses all types of yarn to fashion his wares. He says Kyle makes blankets, clothes and socks.

People can drop off donations during Moose Mart’s regular business hours.
