We are ending this year on a happy note, with huge smiles on our faces. When we started Knitting Rays of Hope, we had big ambitions and always wanted to donate to the City of Hope, a cancer hospital that is very close to us. But we always wondered if we would have enough hats to meet the needs of such a huge cancer center.
Last week, my mother and stepdad delivered 240 hats & scarves to City of Hope! We are so proud of this grand accomplishment. It’s our biggest delivery for cancer warriors yet, and we couldn’t have done it without you, all of our Team Hope knitters!
A little about City of Hope (from their website)
City of Hope is a world leader in the research and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and other serious diseases. We deliver scientific miracles that make lives whole again.
Compassion is the heart of our approach and the driving force behind all our discoveries.
Founded in 1913, City of Hope is one of only 45 comprehensive cancer centers in the nation, as designated by the National Cancer Institute.
Each innovative treatment we create gives people the chance to live longer, better and more fully.
My folks met with Linda, from the Philanthropy and External Relations department, who was very appreciative of these hats.
At City of Hope, we combine science with soul to make miracles every day.
Our grand total to date is now 3,105 hats delivered! We are so excited to see how far Knitting Rays of Hope has grown! We hope that we will be able to sustain this volume to keep all our local hospitals loved and warm. We thank each and every one of our team members who helped make this possible! We are blown away by how creative, generous and caring all of you are- striving to make a difference in our world! Keep spreading hope!
