From our charity coordinator, Joyce Hochstrasser (November 17, 2016):

Thank you all so much for donating quilts, blankets, etc. to the charity quilt drive for the South Shore Hospital Hospice and Homecare Division.  The quilts, afghans, hats, mittens and a baby sweater have been delivered and they are so grateful!  We hadn't donated any items since May so this was quite a big batch of items to be delivered, 71 in all (28 quilts, 9 afghans, 1 baby sweater, 34 hats/mittens - I hope the count is correct on the hats/mittens!). Thanks to Shirley and Jo for delivering these beautiful donations!

Again, thank you for donations!
