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.

We are a group of eight ladies who meet on Tuesdays at our local community center. Our purpose is to crochet items for the veterans who are patients at the Houston VA Hospital. We crochet afghans, lap throws for wheelchairs, hats and scarves, walker bags and also baby blankets and hats. We also crochet special chemo caps. We have been meeting for two years and have contributed approximately $20,000.00 in donated items. We can provide testimonials, if needed. For such a small group of ladies, our work is very productive and important because it gives us great pleasure. And all of the items are made from donated materials (yarns). We have been publicized in our local newspapers.
Our purpose in writing this is to ask for any donations you have - please send them to: MARIE DUSSLING, 9006 SEBER DRIVE, TOMBALL TESAS 77375 OR HAPPY HANDS, C/O TOMBALL COMMUNITY CENTER, 221 MARKET STREET, TOMBALL TEXAS 77375.
