Relief Share volunteers getting ready for the cooler weather – knitting warm hats!By
Relief Share volunteers are preparing for the cooler weather by knitting up hats, scarves, mittens and making snuggly blankets and afghans. When the colder weather hits, requests for help come flooding in.
This is a donation that went out today to a crisis center to help the sick and needy cope with falling temperatures. A warm hat can make all the difference for a tiny baby or toddler. Children having to walk to school in colder temperatures really need a warm hat, mittens and scarf.
It is not usually on everyone’s minds, as we are all enjoying the last rays of summer and heading into fall, but it is important to be ready to meet the needs of those who can’t provide for themselves. Babies and toddlers don’t knit, crochet or sew, but they grow up into adults that can, if they want to. Perhaps the love given to them from strangers as a child will help them continue to create a world filled with sharing, caring, love and peace.
So as we head for the season of ‘peace on earth, good will to all men’ in a few months, lets start in our own homes by making and donating what you can with the skills that you have and sharing.
If you don’t have time to make the items, our volunteers are more than happy to take the supplies you send us to create items to ease the difficulty of children in poverty and sickness. Together, we can be the difference between a child shivering in the cold, using precious resources just to stay warm, when they need to use their strength to heal and grow. Reach out today, please help!
Donations can be sent to Relief Share, 6078 Lundy Rd, Houston, MO 65483-2225. If you would like to make a donation through Paypal, please click the button below.
