Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

Angels in Sun City!

We are a group that meets informally to create for others. So far in 2004 our group of senior ladies (60 members) have contributed the following knitted or chrocheted things to 4 charities:

UMC Hospital:
- 23 lap robes,
- 2 pr. sleeper sox,
- 14 preemie hats,
- 14 hat & bootie sets;

To Comprehensive Cancer Clinic
- 68 chemo hats;

To Nathan Adelson Hospice
- 41 afghans and
- 2 baby blanket/bootie/hat sets;

To Veterans' Hopital in Boulder City
- 12 afghans.

We have one 93 year old lady who makes 5 or 6 lap robes a month which keeps her active and fills many hours. We do other crafts besides knitting and crocheting. We have two Craft Fairs each year to earn money for materials, and we also get donations from others who are giving up crafting. We use the money to buy materials.

This month our local "Link" (community newsletter) did an article on all nine Sun City groups who support various charities. The article was names Angels in Sun City!
