Our Group's 2011 Distribution Totals - Amazing!

Last year, our small group of less than a dozen dedicated crafters managed to somehow make and distribute the following:

Homeless: 112 hats, 53 scarves, 30 pr gloves, 3 blankets

Nursing Homes: 88 shawls, 51 lap throws, 6 pr slippers

Preemies: 111 hats, 42 blankets

Babies: 56 blankets & quilts, 44 hats, 26 shirts & jackets, 9 pr booties 2 pr mittens

This doesn't count gently used items donated by residents, which we also distributed, including 119 decks of cards and almost 800 magazines (700+ were in a series of organized binders). We really enjoyed doing this and hope to be able to do this for a long time to come.

We only promise to work for 2 hrs every Friday morning, together. However, most of us cannot help working a little during the week, off and on. Still, isn't it amazing at how things so small can add up to such a large difference in a needy person's life?
