‘They wanted to make these wonderful blankets and give them back to the community so someone else could benefit from them. They just wanted to give back.’
So just what do you do with hundreds of surplus, hand-crocheted washcloths? A group of Penticton women had just the ticket.
The ladies, all residents of The Hamlets at Penticton, recently armed themselves with knitting needles and crochet hooks and went to work making blankets.
The beneficiary of their generosity was an Okanagan charitable organization, Mamas for Mamas, which supports mothers and caregivers in crisis who are facing a variety of poverty-related struggles.
“The South Okanagan Women in Need Society had whole bunch of washcloths and wanted to give them to us,” said Hamlets’ recreation manager Carolyn Denise.
