Babies of unwed mothers

The Worthy Ladies of the Knights of Columbus have a Baby Shower
in April to give items to the Bayard House which is for unwed mothers. Anyone can donate new items for the babies.
Last year was the first time we participated in this. In one of the baby hats we turned it upside down and folded 12 socks into the shape of roses.(What a bouquet)
The blue hat turned upside down had the elastic top socks and were folded to look like a mans tie. They were adorable.
Baby afghans , sweater & hat sets,and changing mats were made. When they were delivered the women in charge said they had never received such an abundance of beautiful handmade items.
It breaks your heart to think of babies not having what they need to
start their life. It gives us such great joy to see the wonderful
patterns & colors for a sweet child.
Thank you,
Marianne Volpe
