Relief Share donation out: Hats, scarves and lots of love to the crisis center.By
Our Relief Share volunteers have been very busy knitting and crocheting up a storm. Donations have come in from many parts of the country to be combined with items made here at Relief Share’s home office in the Ozarks. Many items to keep babies and families warm have been created with love and prayers to be shared with the sick and needy who appreciate a gift from a stranger to ward off the cold.
Hats, scarves and other items can mean the difference between staying healthy and getting sick. It can also mean the difference between a simple cold and pneumonia or worse. In more desperate circumstances, it can even mean the difference between life and death. Babies need their strength to heal and grow and a warm baby hat and cocoon can mean everything to a struggling family bringing home a preemie baby from the intensive care.
Relief Share is donating 50 handmade knitted hats, and many scarves and other items to the crisis center for the sick and needy, so the Thanksgiving and Christmas season will be a little warmer with love from the heart and hands of strangers who cared enough to spend their time, talents and resources on those who are in desperate circumstances and need help.
A heartfelt THANKS to all the wonderful donors and volunteers working with Relief Share to make the miracle of love and warmth happen for those who need us this season.
