We are well in to summer of 2017 and it has been another great year of blessings for our Shawls To Share Ministry! This year we have been able to continue to provide cancer patient hats for our local hospital's Infusion Center. We also provided cancer patient hats, blankets and breast cancer pillows for the Oncology Department for Washington Hospital as well. Another way we provided shawls, blankets, lap blankets, baby blankets along with a gift tote bag to many different individuals and organizations such as ABODE, SAVE and local Senior Care homes.
We have once again been blessed with donations of fleece, yarn, fabric for our gift tote bags. We have even been given gift cards to buy supplies we may need. We are not a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We do not charge for any gift we make and provide.
This year has been a year for awesome growth for our ministry! We truly appreciate everyone helping us with all the different projects we completed! We have expanded the items we provide as well! Because of the amazing opportunities God has given us, we believe a new name for our ministry is in order! We have begun transitioning to our new name GIFTS TO GIVE. You will see a new format to our website soon, however our hearts and mission remains constant to bless those going through a difficult time.
We will continue to provide gifts of comfort to individuals from many different walks of life for personal illness, hardship, or those in need of encouragement from being isolated, bedridden etc.
Our Photo Album shows just a few of the many projects we have completed!
It has been my vision from the beginning to provide a gift of comfort to individuals going through a difficult time. I wish I could crochet faster and have more time to make more gifts. That being said, I would love to see our ministry grow to provide even more gifts to more individuals. There really are many individuals around us that are very isolated, ill or going through hardship and we could provide just a small something that lets them know they are being thought of, they are valued, and they have a valuable story to tell that we want to hear about when we bring them their gift!
We definitely have a need for our Gift Makers Team to grow as we are lead in the direction of providing more gifts to people in our communities.
Everything needed to complete a project can be provided, you just make it and return it to us and we will deliver them to the individuals!

God tells us to comfort others like we have received comfort from Him! The scripture below says it all for me.
II Cor. 1:3-4 (NIV)
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble, with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
