Wrapped in Love November Notes
November is all about giving thanks and our Wrapped in Love program is grateful for our wonderful group of volunteers! We had another fabulous month, mailing out 90 shawls, lap blankets and scarves. To all of our knitters, crocheters, packagers and supporters, please accept my heartfelt thanks for all you do. My hope is that at this time of year we can add a little brightness to donor families with our lovely creations.
I recently received the following touching note from one of our donor families:
“I want to thank you and Adele and Diane for the lovely shawls you sent us in remembrance of my brother. Tomorrow happens to be my mother’s 90th birthday. I saved the shawls to give her and my sister who lived with my brother and were most impacted by his death until this past weekend. I told mom that the knits were kind of like a gift from him too. They were both so touched by your kindness and generosity. As somewhat a knitter myself I know all the effort and thought that went into the creation of the shawls. What an especially lovely project. My mom has barely taken her shawl off. It's like a cozy hug. I have attached a photo so you can see for yourself.”
Knowing we touch so many hearts makes our program worth all the time, effort and love our volunteers provide. I hope you can join us for our next packaging meeting on Tuesday, December 12th. We will be celebrating the dedication of our volunteers with an end of the year Holiday pizza party!
