Lots of cancer patients in Bronson Hospital and its oncology hematology center’s children’s department will be warm and cozy with hats knit by Tanya DeLong’s Girl Garage knitters who donated 238 knit caps to the cause this winter.
“The patients received them last week and were thrilled. People from Parchment to Constantine and Mattawan to Scotts, as well as knitters in the village of Vicksburg, saw signs in the store window and just kept filling it up with great designs and colors,” DeLong said.
“Now we are knitting scarves for the homeless at the Dream Center on Portage Street in Kalamazoo, where the homeless can be given coats, hats, scarves, gloves, without having to pay for them.”
