My Sister Knits' Annual Clothing Drive

My Sister Knits' Make a Hat Day would be a great time to bring in a donation for our annual clothing drive for Putnam and Irish elementary schools.  They are in dire need of sweat pants for the younger grades, socks, and girls' leggings in sizes 4 - 6.  These kiddos really have need of our generosity.“Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness.” —The Dalai Lama XIVWe hope to see you on Saturday, December 15th!
