AGENTS CROCHET THEIR WAY INTO THE HEARTS OF OUR TROOPS

CLEVELAND, OH – Realty One Real Living’s Southwest Regional Office called upon clients, friends and family to crochet and knit scarves for our troops. It began with a Learn to Crochet class held at Realty One’s new office at 9225 West Sprague. Lead by real estate professional, Leslie Panfil, a dozen agents learned the basics of crocheting and went on to create camouflage scarves for the USO special project, “Bundle Up.”
“I’m particularly proud of our agents who had never picked up a crochet hook before this project came along,” said Panfil. “We hope these scarves exude the comfort and warmth that a handmade gift bestows.”
Scarves must by camouflage in color (Lava Color Waves or 2 strands of Jiffy Yarn Forest Green and Black work well), 9” wide by 5’ long. To learn more about project “Bundle Up”, contact the Cleveland Chapter of the USO at: www.usocleveland.org or call 440-717-0999.
