We want to thank everyone who participated in our annual donation drive. We want to especially thank the following knitters for making this happen: Frances Shelton, Sue Kreitzer, Catherine, Julie Milliron, and Abby.
Thanks to those involved, we sent 2 large boxes of warm hats, scarves, slippers and mittens to our American Veterans. We also sent 2 large boxes to the children and their families of the Dakota Native Americans in need in Chamberlain, SD. This was many knitted toys to be distributed during the holidays as well as lots of warm clothing.
Our last 2 boxes contained mostly baby and new infant knit along with beautiful blankets that were knit and crocheted. These were well received by Mary’s Center for abused moms and newborn infants in need in our capitol of Washington, DC.
I can just picture the children and the Veterans with their beautiful hand knit/crocheted gifts and the happy smiles on their faces.
Thank you all again!
Have a wonderful 2012!
Kim and Pat
