"It is not how much you do but how much love you put into the doing and sharing with others that is important."
-- Mother Teresa

Many items are needed for preemies and babies, as well as Senior Citizens, in so many homes and hospitals around the United States, Canada & Australia.  Just think what a difference we could make if we all could send just one item for each of these projects!  Project Information is listed in order according to mailing due date.  For more information on these charities, you can email the coordinator personally.  Their email addresses are listed below next to the projects they are coordinating.

These are our community projects for 2009.  If you have a charity you would like ATCT to sponsor, please contact us by sending us a message.  


     
 

Big Bend Hospice of North Florida 
Monticello, FL

Mailing Date:
August 1, 2009

Delivery Date:
Labor Day

Coordinator:
Pat J.
(pat1471@embarqmail.com)

Items Needed:
Afghans, sized 42 x 60
or 7-inch granny squares, any color and design (please measure your squares so that they are indeed 7-inches square!).

Big Bend Hospice of North Florida is in need of afghans sized 42" x 60" or 7-inch granny squares that can be put together into afghans.   Because the patients are not ambulatory they don't go outside.  Big Bend Hospice gives all new patients an afghan when they sign up, and then the family will have a memento when the patient passes.

For information on where to send your afghan or squares, please contact Pat directly at pat1471@embarqmail.com or by sending us a message.  Also, when you send your package, please notify Pat so she can be on the lookout for it and notify you when it has arrived.

Items Needed:
Granny daughters made to the specifications in the pattern below.  All worsted-weight yarn colors, including variegated, are accepted.  Send 1 or 100.  Every granny daughter helps!
 

 

Even the tiniest scrap of yarn can be made into a comforting afghan to bring smiles to someone in need and make a difference in someone's day.  When you've got a yard left over of yarn, turn it into a granny and send it in!

I'll be accepting granny daughter squares in the following pattern as well as any unused Red Heart "Soft-White" yarn.
