Group knits, crochets for charity

Oct 19, 2012 - Staff

Volunteers have kept their hands busy this year, knitting and crocheting more than 500 items for county organizations and charities.

The C&K Volunteer Group made baby gear for Abba House, hats and scarves for the Kiwanis Club Coats for Folks, lap robes for veterans, shawls for Help for Health Hospice, baby hats and burial cocoons for Riverton Memorial Hospital, and "bosom buddies" for women who have had mastectomies.

The volunteers made 519 items this year.

"We feel meeting the needs of some of the community is special for us," said Roni Becker, a member of the group.

The volunteers meet at 1 p.m. the second and fourth Monday of the month in Heritage Hall at the Fremont County Fairgrounds. Becker said everyone is welcome to join, and yarn and monetary donations for specific yarn projects are accepted.

For more information, call Becker at 856-6664.
