On behalf of the CASTING OFF THE COLD TEAM if you  receive an item from any of the charities we donate to, and you don't want it, please return it to them. Some of our members have seen blankets, hats and scarves at Value Village in Oshawa and Care and Share in Stouffville.
We work very had to make these items for you, because you need warm clothing for your babies, and older kids. Also it cost us money to do this, so we will appreciate it if you will be a little more appreciative.

So the last meeting for 2016 in Markham was very successful. 
From Lynn quite a few helmet hats.

And this lovely baby outfit.

Cute baby hats from Barb.
