Caring and Sharing

Students helping those in need

I am the Bio Med Coordinator in our school. My mother has cancer and I crocheted her a few hats. That gave me the idea for the club. I thought that students could learn to crochet, donate items to cancer patients, and visit sick and elderly people in our community.

In our first year, over fifty students have signed up.
This year the members of our crochet club have made and donated a blanket to a 12 year old boy with leukemia and made and donated a blanket to girl from a local junior high school who has cancer. We also donated an afghan to be raffled off in a fundraiser to raise money to help her family pay for her medical expenses.

I have a beautiful picture Dominic with his blanket, and pictures from our nursing home visits. A student in the club has written several poems about crocheting. We have used your yarn for many of these projects and we have used your website for ideas for patterns.

It would be wonderful for our students to receive recognition for their work.

Mary Juliano
Bio-Medical Institute Coordinator.
