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.

Charity Co-chair

The Prince William Purlers, a knitting guild in Prince William County in Northern Virginia, is actively giving back to the community through charity.

We choose a different charity project to support each month. We have knitted scarves and hats for the local homeless and abuse shelters. Caps, booties, and blankets have been made for babies born in our area hospitals so that they all have something new to wear home.

We have knitted chemo caps, lap robes and walker bags, which have gone to our nearby nursing homes, adult day care facility and hospice.

We have completed dishcloths for the area food kitchens to include with their bags of food. We have knitted hundreds of 7" by 9" squares as part of the Warm Up America Program, which we then sew into afghans.

Some of these charities are ongoing and will be on our schedule once or twice a year.

All of our projects are volunteer only and our guild members have been more than generous with their time and talents!
