Knitting for Charity

Our Knitter's Guild's Christmas project this year is to support a local Ontario organization - called  Links2Care.  Links2Care is a community support organization which delivers a wide variety of programs to children, youth, adults and seniors.    
Our Guild is making up a large box of knitted and crocheted items, which will distributed amongst the many holiday hampers that the Links2Care organization sends out for their Holiday Hamper Program to families in financial difficulty this Christmas.   Holiday Hampers mean a lot to those families who receive them.  Often the hamper is the only Christmas present a family will receive.   The hampers are put together with a personal touch, as the organization knows the ages, sizes of the recipients and items most needed, including food items.
Items that our Guild will be sending to the program include anything knitted/crocheted such as;  sweaters, blankets, hats, mitts, dish cloths, baby items, toys, socks, etc. for all ages.   Here a couple of  items I made for our Guild's donation box. 
Winter hats
hand knitted dish cloths
