          THANK YOU NOTE FROM THE WOMEN'S CENTRE

                                      

I am so sorry I have remiss in not responding.  You wouldn’t believe it, but all of the donations were scooped up the first week!  Our mothers love the fact  someone has taken the time to knit all of the hats, scarves, mitts and afghans.   Please thank your members for their continued support and the beautiful handcrafted items received.  They are always appreciated and I hope we can continue with this wonderful partnership with Casting off the Cold!

With Deep Appreciation,

         THANK YOU NOTE FROM ROSE OF SHARON 



Yes, all is well here, thank you. It is really starting to pick up at the agency as we are prepping baskets that will be picked up by our families on December 18th. Thank you again for dropping off all of the knitted items, particularly the blankets. We cover each basket with a blanket and historically speaking, we need anywhere between 140-170 blankets each year.
So, the blankets you provided are an absolute help. With Casting Off The Cold and a few others, we always seem to be able to give a homemade blanket to each family.

Your group has been so supportive to us over the past few years - at least 6 now I think (if my memory serves me well). I cannot thank you enough for the kindness, time and energy you put into organizing this service in our community. I know Rose of Sharon is just one of many agencies you support each year. If you haven't already received a formal note of thanks from us to share with the others, you will.  What you donate to us is absolutely perfect so no need to change a thing! :-)  We are truly appreciative of all that you have and continue to do for us.

Kind thanks for checking in. I wish you a wonderful holiday season!
