Crafts for a Cause: January 2017

Crafts2Crafts for a Cause is fired up and ready for another year of making comfort items for hospitals and shelters, thanks to the purchases made at our Holiday Bazaar that wrapped up before Christmas. It’s our only source of funding for the year, so we are very happy to have made more than $2,000! Most of the money goes to buying the supplies we need of flannel, fleece, stuffing, yarn and thread. We also donate some of the funds to Trinity’s missions in Honduras, Heart 2 Heart children’s home and the Leadership Center.

One other happy note for Crafts was the joy of delivering 50 big red flannel stockings and knit Santa hats to Fair Oaks Hospital as a fun take-home gift for parents of newborns who arrive on or around Christmas. Special thanks to Judy Osha, Nell Gilmore, Peggy Trapp and Cindy Wilson for their help.

Our work continues throughout the year, so we’ll meet Mon., Jan. 9 and Mon. Jan. 23 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. In Room 124. Please join us in making pillows, bears, dolls, blankets and dresses. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse.
