Loving Hands

We knit and crochet for Children with Cancer and the Veterans Hospital. We have also made afhans for abandoned and abused children.

The mother of one of our group of knitters ia 96 years old who currently resides in an assited living facility; she has taught other residents how to knit and they continue to create hats with our yarn. This helps to keep the ladies active and alert as wellas contribute to a worthy cause.

For the local veterans hospital we have contributed 125 afghans. This year we are making lap robes, ditty bags, wheelchair bags, tracheotomy covers,and lap robes.

To date we have contributed more than 6,000 hats to Caps for Kids and the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.

We have pictures of donations and thank you letters from various hospitals in the United States as well as personal thank you notes from recipients and there families. All are on file.
