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.

There are two Family Shelters in Santa Cruz that the Santa Cruz Bible Church has supported. Some of the knitters in our congregation decided it would be nice to give the women in the shelters, about 40 at the moment, a personal gift. We asked for members who would like to knit, even if they needed to learn how, to help us make a nice scarf for each woman in the shelter. We packaged them in plastic and tied with a matching ribbon, so the recipients could choose the color they like. We used different weight yarns, but all washable. We chose the large skeins of Lion Brand and got one scarf from each skein. On some scarves we have included a "Fun Fur" but only on a few, because it does increase the price which each knitter pays.

We are just launching this program, but expect to get 40 scarves made by Sept. 15. By then, we may find more women who need a personal, hand-made bit of encouragement to show the love of Christ.

We meet for 3 hours, every other week. The local media doesn't know about it yet.
