Plus, Handmade Cards for Hurley Kids!



SO MUCH CRAFTY AWESOMENESS!



YARN BRIGADE UPDATE
Operation: Warm Up Flint


We worked with the residents at Carriage Town Ministries
to place hats around their building for those in need to take.

Each resident also received a hat of their own and
wrote a note of encouragement on the back of the tag.

Special thanks to our Yarn Brigade volunteer,
Peggy Olsen, for knitting these 48 hats!
