Our favorite charity is From the Heart, a wonderful local organization which provides knitted objects for many good causes. Click here to find out more about this group. If you have a desire to help, there are many items you can knit or crochet that will be useful and appreciated.
Chemo caps for adults are always in demand (suggested yarns are LionBrand Cotton Ease and Microspun – no wool, please.) Sweaters for teddy bears, baby blankets,and lap blankets for injured veterans are just a few more suggested items.

Our members surprise us by producing a larger number of charity items each year, and we have one outstanding contributor, Darlene Losco, who knitted over 50 hats in 2010. Although charity is not our primary function, we are proud to help our community by supporting From the Heart.
