Relief Share volunteers knitting needles have been very busy!By
It’s fun to open the mail at Relief Share, especially when it is a box of the most darling baby hats and booties/slippers. This wonderful box of the softest baby items has now been delivered to the hospital for precious new babies needing to conserve body heat and use their strength to heal and grow. Every stitch in in place and it is very apparent that the volunteer did her best in creating these gifts of love.
Nights watching TV with family, enjoying entertainment and hands busy with clicking knitting needles makes for lots of happy warm babies and children. This donation of double layer hats and baby cocoons was delivered to the Food Pantry and Crisis Center. With the cold snap making folks miserable and mothers worried about keeping children warm, this was a delightful donation to gladden hearts and warm bodies. Some of the hats are going to the school for the mentally handicapped. They love the bright colors and the soft warmth. A huge thank you to our volunteers who make miracles happen.
Lotsa love – ReliefShare.org donation of baby cocoons, hats, and booties for the sick and needy in Texas County Missouri. We have wonderful donors and volunteers ♥
All different kinds and colors of yarn were combined with skill, love and effort into this large donation that just went out to bless the lives of God’s sick and needy children.
Baby cocoons from preemie sizes to 6 months old and matching hats, baby hats, hats for children and adult hats were knitted and crocheted.
’tis the season to be sneezin’ is one of the quips heard as volunteers actively addressed the needs of little ones who are shivering in the cold and need essential items to keep them warm and healthy. For the children who are seriously ill, the hats and cocoons aren’t just a comfort item, but life savers as they need to keep up their strength to heal instead of just trying to keep warm.
Prayers were said over each gift of love and hearts were full as we saw the outpouring of love for those who are sick and afflicted.
With each donation coming in and going out flows the pure love of Christ. Right now we are dealing with the need to stay warm – that means knitted and crocheted hats, socks, booties, baby cocoons, afghans and blankets. We are also making baby blankets, quilts, clothing, gowns, tee shirts, pants and jackets for little ones to be warm and snuggly.
Do you like to sew, knit, crochet, tat, quilt or create? We would love to have you help us in our humanitarian service efforts. There are no restrictions on what can be donated. Relief Share addresses crisis – all types of crisis- and we do our best to quickly respond to requests for assistance.
January is not finished with us yet! So far ReliefShare.org has donated clothing, bedding, hats, shoes, household goods, pet supplies, baby blankets, nursing pillows, afghans, and a lot more to many organizations and individuals in need.

YOU are important and can make a significant difference in the lives of those who, for various reasons, can’t help themselves at the moment. Many times, those who received help have returned to be the helper and donated items, time and service in return for others who need assistance. It’s exciting to see the cycle of love complete and generate more love. We have been providing humanitarian service for over 2 decades from this location, it is such a blessing to see God’s love perpetuate generosity, caring, and support for those who are in emergent circumstances.
