ELK Studio – From the Heart Calendar of Events

ELK Studio From the HeartAre you interested in helping?  ELK Studio – From the Heart believes we can serve other people who are in need, hurting or just as a reminder someone cares. We can take a little of our time and create a hat or something crocheted to let him or her know someone cares.

How do we choose our organizations monthly? There are so many hurting people out there and when you offer a place for community, it’s amazing what you can find out. One  member in the group had been the victim of physical and mental abuse and a shelter provided her safety until she could get it together. Another one because her child suffered from cancer but because of the doctors and nursing staff and mostly prayer, he pulled through it like a champ. The hats he received while at the hospital were a comfort to him. Another woman in the group had a baby born prematurely. The NICU unit was a wonderful help and her child survived so giving back to them means something to her.

I’m giving you a summary of each event.  If you would like more details, join my group, ELK Studio – Crocheters and find the event tabs.  It’s there you will find where to send your projects.
