Donations from Marcia Clark

Received a box from Marcia last week. She donated:

12 pair of slippers
2 baby hat-mitten sets
3 child hat-mitten sets
1 hat
1 pair of mittens

Thank you so much. I really enjoy just sitting and looking at the love that has gone into our donated items and appreciating the time and heart that went into every stitch.

Donations from Rose Meyer

Rose sent a package that arrived in December after my Mother delivered the donations for 2008 so I decided to place them in the donations for 2009. She donated:

2 skeins of green yarn
Christmas wrapping paper
8 pair of slippers
3 hats

Thank you so much for your help. We are off to a good start.

Steven's Comfy Toes Delivery for December 2008

All of the donations that were received were delivered to the White Pine County Santa's Elves program to help make children warmer this winter. So many have been hard hit by the economic changes in the world yet they still donated slippers, hats, scarves, mittens and skeins of yarn. I didn't get a picture of the donations but there were several big black plastic bags to deliver. I've already seen several of the hats and mittens on children in the store. I just smiled knowing that this is the face of a child we have helped keep warm. I am going to scan a copy of the letter to post for all to see. One of my resolutions this year is to post the donations one my blog like I originally planned on doing in the first place, then life changed things. thank you to everyone for helping keep a child warm, especially since last night we received over a foot of snow in one night. It is think, wet and deep. We haven't had a storm like this in a while and there is still more to come today and tomorrow.
