Donation Time is Approaching!

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.

Thank you for Donations!!

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.

We have received a beautiful letter from St Joseph’s School in SD thanking all of you for your kindness and hope.

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
