2011 HHCC Donations

There is no doubt that members of the HHCC have big hearts.  Throughout the year, members hand crocheted and knitted a variety of goodies to be donated locally.  Then the items were sorted & labeled to make the distribution process easier. 

On December 5th, HHCC President Grace, elf-helper KC, and HHCC Founder Dee, hauled the goodies to the local Salvation Army of Danbury, and the Elizabeth House of Danbury:

This SUV was stuffed with crocheted goodies created by HHCC members!
