Tree House Charity Scarf and Sock Challenge Update

Dear Members and Friends,

We well exceeded our goal of 85 scarves and 85 pairs of socks for the Tree House. I’m so proud and excited to share with you our delivery of the 97 scarves and 127 pairs of socks to the lovely ladies at Tree House; Crystal and Renee were there to greet us and Crystal was kind enough to show us around their wonderful facility. Here are some of the hightlights of our trip to Tree House. Thank you to all who participated and made this a reality.

Crystal was shocked to find out that we had well over 85 scarves and socks to donate for their upcoming Christmas party.

We enjoyed meeting Crystal and Renee.

The Tree House store.

Organized bins of donated items.

It was fun to see some of the KS My Stitch donated blankets that we had crocheted around.
This is one of their classrooms where they instruct the mother’s on important things on how to care for their children. She showed us an art project that they had worked on and helped the mothers make their children aprons with their names painted on them.
Here’s a group of volunteers that come in once a month to help with sorting the donated items. Crystal called them their Westlink ladies. It was very nice to meet all of them and Crystal pointed out that they are truly a blessing to the Tree House.
These are two more blessings to the Tree House; Barbara and Carl Patton. Barbara puts together 30 gift bags every month and donates them to the Tree House. What a blessing it was to meet her and Carl; they drive from McPherson, Kansas every month to donate 30 of these beautiful gift bags.
Barbara crochets 30 blankets, 30 sweaters, and 30 pairs of booties and places a bib, a pair of socks and a onesie in each of her giftbags. Here’s a picture of the contents of one of her donated bags.

Crystal is explaining how the Tree House takes in donations and how they welcome volunteers too.
