Warm Hands to Warm Hearts, a crocheting and knitting group founded by volunteers at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, creates hand-made blankets and donates them to local nursing homes and care centers. “We need yarn and knitters and crocheters to create the 7” x 9” rectangles,” said Dorothy Yakumithis, one of the group’s founders. Once a month, members get together to plan and the members take completed rectangles home to be sewn into blankets. The completed works of art are wrapped with care and topped with a tag stating each one is, “…a message of how much you are loved.”
“We have donated over 50 blankets per month,” said Dorothy. “They are received with sincere gratitude. We can see the joy this project brings.”
Yarn donations, or the donation of completed rect- angles are much appreciated and can be dropped off at the church hall. Use any stitch you like in any color you like. Warm Hands to Warm Hearts is also grateful for monetary donations. For questions, call Dorothy at 419-867-0734.
