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.

Warmth to those in need

I started a ministry in our community to provide blankets, hats, mittens, scarves sewn, knitted or crocheted to distribute to local charities. We have provided items for the Y Womens Shelter, Birthright, Churches United Homeless Shelter. I have a website with pictures of items donated,

I started the ministry in November and it has really took off. I am doing a presentation at a Retirement and Assisted Living center at the end of the month. My goal is to find those interested in doing the knitting and crocheting. I will supply them with yarn and knitting needles or crochet hooks if they need them to work on projects for out ministry. I have added a knitted helmet liner project for our troops in Iraq and Afgahnastan. Please check out my website for information on the history of this ministry and what we have accomplished to date.
