87 items to St. John's Hospital

On June 16, 2015, we returned to St. John's Hospital in Maplewood to donate 87 items: 81 hats, 2 blankets, 2 scarves/cowls and 2 shawls.

"What a beautiful assortment," stated Beth Forristall. "I can't thank you enough."

Kathy was also impressed with the variety of items we donated. She observed that their patients love these handmade items. When she talks to them later, they remind her about the shawl or hat they received, commenting perhaps on how it goes perfectly with their favorite chair.

St. John’s Hospital is part of the HealthEast Cancer Care Center. Team Yarn member Kelli McCully put us in touch with this hospital, as her father-in-law works there. The site was where we made our fourth donation in May 2013. READ THAT POST HERE.

At that time, we were approaching 400 total items donated. Now, we are nearing 2,000!!
