Many Thanks Eileen.
Eileen Nash, one of our regular donors, has been very busy sewing, knitting and crocheting and has donated an incredible amount of donations again. Eileen made 1 lovely quilt, 100 Santa Sacks, 6 patchwork bags, 4 quilt tops, 2 bags of new jewellery items,a large bag of toiletries, large bags of toys, and 35 crocheted blankets.
She also picked up donations from a local retirement village, Salford Park in Wantirna, . The Lifestyle Manager, Leanne Nash, and the ladies have been busy knitting, donating 11 knitted scarves, 15 pair of knitted mittens for adults, 2 hat and gloves sets, 30 knitted beanies, 10 beautifully knitted jumpers for children, 4 knitted face washers, 9 pair of booties, 1 pair of socks and a baby jacket. There were too many items to photograph everything.
Pam Neenan is an absolute angel and picked up everything on Monday and delivered it to Backpacks 4 Vic Kids. They were very happy with the donations, especially the Santa Sacks for their clients. They anticipate needing 6,500 Santa Sacks this year and have about 3,500 so far.
