Be a Santa for a Senior Holiday Gift Drive, Toronto, ON

When I'm watching TV, I like to keep my hands busy so I knit small quick projects like mittens, dishcloths, etc.

Last December I'd come across the Be a Santa for a Senior Holiday Gift Drive program, run by Gwen (she's in my 'hood). Gifts donated go to recipients of the Meals on Wheels program run out of West Neighbourhood House (Ossington/Dundas W). Most of these men and women are over 55 and live alone. I'd connected with her and had donated 28 pairs of mittens and a hat I'd knitted and was looking to donate.

This year everything I knitted was for this gift drive. This morning I dropped off my donations … 26 pairs of mittens and four 9-foot soft scarves I knitted this year for the gift drive and 37 cotton dishcloths I’ve knitted the last few years.
