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.

In October of 2004 I retired from the county after 20 years. Knew I wanted to give back and since I Love Babies I started working as a Volunteer at St Joseph Women's Hospital here in Tampa, Florida, in the Gift Shop. I started working there in January of 2005. Shortly there after I volunteered to make the baby booties as the lady who use to make them decided it was too much for her.

Since that time I have also helped make the hats when needed. At the present time I am working on a baby blanket to take in for them to sell. I am the only one who makes the booties and think so far since Feb I have made over 60 pair.

Would love to have some more people to help with this project as people really do like to buy and give handmake gifts.

Anyone who has the time I would encourage them to get involved in the community as you receive back much more than you can ever give. I would like to think that the people who buy these booties can feel the Love I have put into them as they give them as gifts. I love kids and have 9 Grandkids of my own.

I love to knit or crochet and also have for years done slippers and lap blanket for people in nursing homes. If anyone from Tampa Florida reads this and would like to get involved and does not know how please call me at 813-884-7001.

I mostly use Baby yarn for the hospital. On the slippers and blankets I use a lot of differnt yarn that some people give me from yarn left from projects the lap blankets people seem to love in the different colors.
Love and God Bless you
