This program allows local residents who have knitting or crocheting abilities to have a positive impact on people who are facing crisis. The volunteers create thousands of handmade items each year for distribution to those in need. Items include: blankets, shawls, shrugs, hats, baby sweaters and caps, helmet liners for our troops, booties, etc.
Locations that items are distributed to include: Alpha Pregnancy Center, the Free Clinic, St. Gerards, St. Vincent De Paul, local nursing homes, hospices, oncology and dialysis care centers, and many more.
