Thank you, Gemma’s Angels, for including our group, Creative Hands in Dauphin County, with your weekly distributions. We are a newly formed nonprofit group who consists of members who love to knit, crochet and sew. In working with Gemmas Angels, we are given the opportunity to donate all homemade items which consist of hats, scarves, blankets, slippers, and many more items !! We are always looking for new members who love to create; look us up on Facebook ... it does a heart so much good to spread the love ♥️
Thank you so much Mike Macchioni for thinking of me and my family. After having a long day today it was nice to feel the "love" from the Gemma's Angels.
I will be at the Hershey Community Gardens Saturday morning around 8 to do some more weeding and hopefully plant some vegetables. I hope to see some people come out and help me.
Enjoy a delicious breakfast and support a wonderful cause!
