Spring Charity Event
April 27 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The next KANG event will be held on April 27, 2019, from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Kingwood Medical Center.
The theme of the knit-in is Hats for Charity. We will be knitting and accepting hats for preemies, children, women, and men, along with the Head Start hats. We have a special request for preemie hats and blankets for the fetal bereavement program at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital in Houston. Bev’s Baby Rib Hat for 2-3 pound preemies is a good option, and Micro Preemie Hats for the smallest babies. Blankets should be 20″ – 22″ square. Color is not a concern, but please stay away from brown, black, and solid white. We will pass out tickets for the number of items brought to the event and will draw for prizes.
There will be a featured speaker for the Head Start hat program, along with the area coordinator for Knitted Knockers. We will also have a silent auction for our donated, high-quality yarn which is not suitable for charity knitting. Plus, bring a knit or crochet related wrapped gift for a special, fun game ($10 – $15 limit), and canned or non-perishable items for donation to a local food pantry. All auction proceeds and donated food items will go to Humble Area Ministries.
KIK will provide hot coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, plus bottled water. Please bring finger foods to share.
If you would like to donate yarn for charity use, it must be worsted weight, machine washable and dryable. Small quantities of yarn are acceptable as long as they meet the above stated requirements.
