Small Children Caps/Scarves & Mittens
- I went to the local wal-mart in Vivian, La to pick up items I needed.
First: I've beren checking for the "Flag Material" in Vivian &
all stores in Shreveport, La & haven't found any.
Second: They had a buggy full of knitted caps, some with scarves
& gloves, then also just heavy gloves/mittens. These were all for
children & the price was good but not good enough for me. I spoke
with the Manager & sh said the prices will be reduced again real
soon. I told her if I could get the right price I'd be getting as
many as I could afford. NOW MY QUESTION: The first thing I thought
about is; Do you send these kinds of items to the troops overseas and
they can hand them out to the children? I've been a member for some
time but due to just being diagnosed with Parkinson's I haven't been
able to do much of anything, get regulated on my medication & I'll be
back at it. This would be one way I could contribute something to the
cause. The only thing I've been doing is praying for each & everyone
of you and most of all our troops. I may have to go ahead & buy them
if they go down to a great give-away price & if you don't use them
I'll just have to find some place to get them out. Any suggestions
with the caps/gloves/scarves anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
Also if anyone has any ideas for anything I can do I'd take those
suggestons with open arms. I'm also have some handicaps but don't
stop me from being able to help & do for this group. I crochet all
the time but haven't been able to now for months, I'm having
an "Yarn/hook/book attack" badly. Thank you all so much, just wish I
could do more but I'll be getting there. I live just out of
Shreveport, La GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU FOR THE HOURS OF DEICATION YOU
HAVE PUT INTO THIS GREAT PROGRAM ! ! !
