Warm Thanks for Veterans


--by myfbil, posted Oct 9, 2021
I am currently collecting and making afghans and shawls and collecting toiletries for our veterans in a nursing home. So far, I have 35 afghans and 10 shawls as well as various other items. These will be used as Christmas gifts for the veterans. I put out the word to let others know I'm collecting so hope to have many more by the end of November.

I have been doing the afghans for about 5 years (maybe more) and have donated over 700 afghans as well as other items. I've been blessed with many helping hands and will continue until I can no longer do it.
