"I dropped off our 4 huge bags of donations for Evergreen Recovery Center today after the board meeting. They were absolutely delighted to receive them, and especially so many, and said they have been looking forward to it and really enjoyed the items last year. They have 3 buildings in Everett with 24 women& their children in each building, as well as another location in Shoreline.
Thank you all for your generous donations!
Also, I just wanted to add that I had my two young-ish kids with me (5 & 7) when I dropped the stuff off. The fact that a group of caring, like minded people could come together and make an impact like that made a huge impression on them and on the way home we had a very long conversation about kindness and generosity and simple ways to help others in need. I know they will remember it for life."
We received a very nice thank you from Evergreen Recovery Center in response:
"Thank you so much for the knitted items donated to Evergreen Recovery Centers. The women and children absolutely love the beautiful hats and scarves donated each year. We appreciate your dedication, kindness and thoughtfulness."
It is so wonderful to hear that our knitting and crocheting is helping people stay warm and feel cared for.
