Here are some of the FABULOUS women belonging to the Tuesday Night “One Stitch at a Time” group at the Ojai Valley Alano Club. We’re all wearing some of the items we have knit for our annual donation to the homeless in our community. It’s a FUN bunch, and how lucky are we to have a place to go to, to belong to. A place we can safely continue our own recovery and healing. A place we can come together and knit, share, laugh……for ourselves, for others and for a higher purpose.
This year is our third annual donation to The Turning Point Foundation serving the growing homeless population in Ventura County and who creates
Positive places of recovery for people disabled by mental illness
We’re also so happy to have knit hats for the cancer patients at Ventura County Hospital – Hematology and Oncology Center. Thank You to the amazing nurses for their endless compassionate work. They surely keep their patients hearts warm, and we can help keep their heads warm:-)
I want to also bring attention to the AMAZING girls at Prototypes Women’s Center in Oxnard where I teach knitting and crocheting every week. They all got together and surprised me with countless knitted and crocheted CareSquares for the blankets and scarves we donate to Turning Point Foundation. Their lives are so full working on getting back on track and back into society in a healthy way again, and yet they feel the need to already give back and be of service to someone even less fortunate than they are. Given the chance and opportunity I think we all innately feel the need to be of service to another, I think it is part of our essence.
To all the women at the Ojai Valley Alano Club and Prototypes Women’s Center
THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO
THE WORLD IS A LITTLE WARMER BECAUSE OF YOU
