Attention Happy Hookers: You Ladies Knocked It Out Of The Park

You touched so many hearts with your unique talent. This past year because of you we delivered 260 gift bags of lap robes, shawls, hats and scarf sets, booties and other goodies. It’s so nice to visit the nursing homes after Christmas and seeing all your beautiful work and the joy it brought to so many people. You are truly Christmas Angels and I feel so proud and blessed to have you in our lives. 

We have yarn that was donated to the center and will always welcome all donations. We did have some lap robes and hats that were very small we donated to CEO for the children in their care (From 3 months on up.) In going forward and preparing for “Christmas 2023” Lap Robes should measure 40×36 and shawls should measure 54×20. If you only knew how much you are appreciated for your thoughtfulness and kindness. Thank you so much! Please feel free to call or visit the center. Monday thru Friday 9am to 3pm. 518-463-216.
