A great big THANK YOU has to go out to the lovely people of the Trumpet Hill Yarn Store (http://www.trumpethill.com ) on New Karner Road in Albany who also knitted some of the clothing which was donated. To Pat and the rest of the ladies who knitted we were grateful and happy to have your help on this project. Below is just a sampling of some of the beautiful items that were donated.
For a grand total of 83 blankets, sweaters, hats, booties, and matching sets.
Then Liz and Elaine grabbed a few more. We had about 12 bags full of items. I was busy taking pictures but I did help carry a few bags.
Then today we made our delivery to Parsons. Catie pulled out the first few bags full...
From left to right: Catie, Liz, Elane, Julia and Rameca. Julia and Rameca work at Parsons and they were so excited to see what we had collected.
We came home today feeling renewed and ready to complete our next charity project which will be hats, mittens and ponchos for St. Margaret's Center for the disabled.
