Pretty yellow daffodils from the yard, it only it were that time of year again and we had the rest of spring and summer ahead of us, instead of cold, wet, fall upon us with winter looming it's dark ugly head so near. With each passing year I dread more and more to see fall come and begin counting the days til Spring. And of course it is during this time, we think more about those living in the elments, those without a roof over their heads, those less fortunate then we are.
It becomes increasingly more important that we knit, crochet, loom and donate to those who need us. Men, Women, and Children on the streets, in the shelters, some barely above the streets and shelters. Our hats, scarves, mittens, slippers, socks and personal care items do make a difference.
For children, it helps them get through the day at school. It helps them be able to go outside with the friends at recess, to not appear so different.
We distribute our hand made items to several schools in the area near the Bridge Folks and several shelters with the help of Lynn and her husband. Highland Elementary School is one of those we've donated to. This is a lovely response from the school for recent donation I wanted to share with you all.........and to add my thanks to hers for all you all do. (this is a copy and paste of her email)
Good Afternoon, Ms. Holladay,
I apologize for not sending this earlier. I personally want to thank you and extend my appreciation for your wonderful gifts. I'm sure that the children will love them. Highland, children has such a great need and these items couldn't have come at a better time, being that the weather is changing so swiftly.
Once. again, I thank you for your wonderfully, hand-crafted gifts, that was created with love, for our children.
Ms. Lynn Graves
