Looking back on 2017, Crafts for a Cause has some interesting numbers to share. During the past year, the work of our volunteers enabled us to deliver an astonishing 600 knitted baby caps, 240 neck pillows, 30 surgery dolls, 150 fleece hats, 40 lap blankets, 40 heart pillows, 75 pillowcase dresses, 50 fleece throws, and 55 Christmas stockings and Santa hats for newborns. Most items went to Fair Oaks Hospital, which places a high priority on the care and comfort of its patients. The fleece throws went to the Linus Project, which distributes blankets to children of all ages. And the dresses were sent to needy girls in Uganda through the international group Dress a Girl.

A BIG thank you goes out to all the volunteers who helped make all these comfort items. If you’d like to be a part of Crafts for a Cause, but can’t attend the work sessions, we also have some homework projects. Contact Molly Sprouse at mollysprouse@gmail.com for more information.
