Knitters Cap Another Great Year

I look forward to every winter when my front porch turns into a distribution depot for hundreds of Hats for the Homeless, and it gives me joy to bring them to shelters, hospitals, schools, community agencies and other sites where people struggling to deal with Minnesota’s winter get assistance, encouragement and proof that there are people all over the country who are willing to reach out.  I make a point of telling staff at these sites that the caps they are receiving for distribution come from all over the country, often with notes of compassion and encouragement.

So I offer you greetings and thanks from folks all over Minneapolis who know the value of community and compassion.
