Knitting Pals by the Bay
PALS NEWS FEBRUARY 2019
We distributed 2,300 caps and 100 scarves this past year.
Our clients have increased and several places we serve
are requesting we send caps more often. Even with the
recent postage increase we will continue to help and
serve as we enter our 18th year.
We added John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek. An active
group of ladies residing at The Heritage in downtown
Walnut Creek are knitting and hand deliver to the hospital.
Connie Doty is directing the ladies; she was once a pal of
the East Bay branch.
We also added, UCSF Cancer Center in San Francisco, a referral
from our partner, ImagiKnit.
We have a new pal, Ethel Murphy who is knitting and hand delivers
her caps to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation in Fremont.
We are pleased to advise we have selected
Rochelle Mullen as our V.I.P. (Very Important Pal) award for 2018. A few
years ago our Millbrae contact was unable to handle the senior
group of pals. Rochelle stepped in and went right to work
running around picking up caps and delivering yarn for all
the many pals. Even when she broke her arm she didnít slow
down, she had her children serving as her personnel drivers
so she could continue to take care of Pal business; plus she
is always pleasant and offering herself to do more for our
In November, a group of Pals participated in the
Annual Senior Boutique in South San Francisco.
They showed off their talents with many of their
hand crafted items as you can see from the photos below.
