Knitting For Cancer at the YWCA

Suzie Hawkes will coordinate a knitting activity for cancer patients on Thursday, February 2, at 10 a.m. at the YWCA Piqua. Participants will be knitting or crocheting hats and other items to donate to cancer patients at UVMC. Individuals coming to help with this project are asked to bring their own yarn, knitting needles or crochet hooks.

"This is a wonderful community project to support those affected by cancer," said Hawkes, YWCA volunteer. "It is especially meaningful to those receiving our items to show that members of the community are helping them through a difficult time," she added.

"Several community members have already donated a large amount of hats that they have done at home. We were thrilled with these donations," added Hawkes. "Anyone can donate items they have made at home if they are unable to attend the February 2 get together," she said. "We plan to do this each month on the first Thursday and encourage others to come and join in this very special project," said Hawkes.

For more information, stop at the YWCA at 418 N. Wayne Street or call 773-6626. Participants are encouraged to pre-register for the session. The YWCA is handicap accessible.
