Yes, you’re reading the calendar correctly. It’s April and I’m just now posting about the 2012 Bear Hugs delivery. Things have been pretty busy in my life since the new year began so I haven’t had time to write. The good news is that slowly but surely major projects are being completed, leaving more time for MadameStitch!
I collected scarves, hats and gloves from many caring individuals and even a youth group looking for ways to serve. When all items were counted, I ended up donating 95 scarves, 72 hats and 74 pairs of gloves! As you can see, my trunk was pretty full.
When I arrived at New Bethany Ministries on a very sunny day, the bags were loaded in a shopping cart for transport into the storage room. They didn’t all fit in the basket.
Any time is a good time to begin your scarf or hat for the 2013 Bear Hugs collection. You can mail your donations to the address listed on the website or, if you’re local to the Lehigh Valley, email MadameStitch to make arrangements for pick up. I always have a scarf in progress – why don’t you?!
