Through the kindness of our knitters the Guild has sent 902 knitted and crocheted items away so far this year (by October 2015) to our four charities. We hear in general, that the scarves for the abused women’s shelters have a wonderful positive effect on each recipient. If you wonder who exactly is getting our donations and how they feel about it, read on.
Staff Sergeant Walker sent the Guild an appreciative message after receiving a wool cap in an Operation Gratitude box. The cap was knit by Guild member Amy Sheridan. Thank you Amy! Thank you knitters!
As Staff Sergeant Walker wrote, “I hope you all continue to contribute to “Operation Gratitude” …they have been a consistent moral booster during my 10 years in the Marines.”
