A few days after Tropical Storm Irene tore through Schoharie County in New York, the Hats For A Purpose team jumped into action. Stepping forward, Donna, her sister, Kathy in Canada, Betty, a member of the Red Hats and my friend Cyndi, got right to work. Tomorrow almost 100 exquisitely knit, crocheted or loomed hats, many with scarves to match, go to children in the Schoharie area just in time for our cold northeast winter days. As an added bonus, Donna also made several beautiful afghans to help those that lost bedding and blankets.
I know the recipients of these wonderful gifts will be appreciative. I also believe the deep, rich feeling of kindness and loving care is even more valuable. Thanks to a wonderful group of people. Hats off to you all!
