Volunteer Your Time
 
You can help in many ways.  We are sending the Youth Center donations of hats, mittens, gloves, scarves, socks, games, videos and so on.  The members of our group are busy knitting , crocheting , and sewing items for the children who spend their time at the Youth Center.
We will soon have many patterns available for you to chose from.  Other donations welcome are instant coffee, tea , sugar free hot cocoa, sugar substitutes, sugar free candies and gums, and any other products that work well for diabetics.
