Crafts for a Cause Helped Many People in 2018

Crafts for a Cause closed out 2018 with some awesome statistics:

  • 250 neck pillows,
  • 83 dresses,
  • 20 blankets,
  • 118 heart pillows,
  • 212 adult hats,
  • 79 surgery dolls,
  • and an astonishing 1,200 kitted and crocheted baby caps.

That’s a rough estimate of all the comfort items Crafts delivered to Fair Oaks Hospital, Christ House, area shelters and ministries to needy girls around the world during the past year. Just this week, we dropped off 52 Christmas stockings and 86 knitted Santa hats that will be given to holiday newborns at Fair Oaks Hospital.

Our group also donated a big shipment of medicine and health supplies to Art for Humanity, bought wish list items for the Fairfax animal shelter, and supported Trinity’s missions to The Leadership Center and Heart to Heart orphanage. We paid for all our supplies and donations solely through sales from the annual Holiday Bazaar. So thanks to everyone who supports us by shopping! (Sales continue through Sun., Dec. 23.)

Meanwhile, our work continues on alternating Monday nights, when we make all those comfort items. Sessions in January will be Jan. 7 and Jan. 21, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. If you can’t make the meetings, we have homework. We also have a Loom Hat project for those interested in making adult hats for Christ House and baby caps for Fair Oaks Hospital. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse.
