Thanks to a wonderful group of folks who knit, crochet and weave we have exceeded our goal to make 100 hats for kids at risk. Now I will ask you to knit some more – for the kids in Schoharie County who lost everything during the devastating floods following Irene’s visit to our area. Cold weather is just around the corner and your help will make a difference to these children.
I will work with Jack Hill, a local team leader for Volunteers In Mission, a program of UMCOR, the humanitarian relief and development agency of the United Methodist Church. Jack and fellow volunteers have been down in the Schoharie area working to clean-up and rebuild. This network of volunteers extends down to Greene, Broome and Delaware counties so as soon as we warm up the kids in Schoharie we will keep going. I will also ask my Rotary friends in those counties to pass the word to anyone who wants to help.
We need all the hats we can make – in fact, if you can’t knit or crochet or weave, how about purchasing a hat or two? Winter is just around the corner so we need to move quickly.
Needles Up, Crochet Hooks Get Ready.
