Judy reported that Afghans for Afghans sent a shipment last month of a final total of 4,050 warm items (their original goal had been 900)!! Several of our members contributed wool items for that shipment.
Michelle Tang thanked those who had made/bought mittens for her friend’s project of sending mittens to a church mission in New York City for the children there for the holidays. She received 11 pairs of mittens from our group.  She now reports that, as of 12/10, her friend in New York has collected/received at least 472 pairs of mittens – in one month!!
