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, slippers, doggy sweaters, etc.

This is the third year I've knitted for 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. 

Gwen had asked for slippers this year and since the summer I've knitted 27 pairs. I'm also donating a pair of mittens and a beanie. Gwen is picking them up this afternoon.
