Our annual drive for warm hand knit clothing has begun. We donate every December to our American Veterans homes and hospitals. They need hats, scarves, blankets, and mittens. We also like to share some baby items for the Abused Mothers with small children. This could be infant size hats and wraps in all sizes.
In the past, we also sent warm items to St Joseph’s Indian School in South Dakota. The children love to get something that is hand made like a hat or scarf to keep them warm.
If you can knit up just one or two items, we will make sure they get to some very needy folks. It’s a great way to use up some yarn remnants and clean out the closet. They are especially great if a note from the knitter is attached with joyous, holiday sentiments.
Won’t you take an afternoon to brighten someone’s spirit and warm their cold heads and necks? We thank you for your time and energy, and sharing spirits. Send donations to address below by the end of December, 2014.
