Local Knitting Guilds that are members of The Knitting Guild Association are encouraged to make and donate items to charity. Joan Whitten, Charity Committee Co-chairperson, records our contributions and keeps a running list for the year. At each meeting she reports what has been donated since the previous meeting.
ESSS Charity Report for May 2016
Since our last report we have donated 64 items including 13 scarves, 9 chemo headbands, 7 hats, 1 pr fingerless mittens, 1 vest, 7 blankets, 8 dog blankets, 8 baby hats and 10 skeins of yarn to 6 different charities. This gives us a YTD total of 595 items.
Last Friday I mailed 24 red baby hats to American Heart Association to contribute to their last minute challenge of 100 hats before Thursday May 26. These hats came from a variety of sources including some of our members here. I am giving us credit for these which gives us a new YTD total of 619 items.
