The Outside Knitters are a group who provide knitted baby items for our Dogwood Gift Shops at Lions Gate Hospital. With a few exceptions, they are not members of our Auxiliary. However, their contribution to our Auxiliary and, subsequently, to Lions Gate Hospital is enormous, and we are very grateful for that.
This past year, five Auxiliary members and twenty outside knitters contributed 3,814 hours of knitting on our behalf. Another 477 hours from anonymous donors bring our grand total to 4,291 hours. As well as their time, ALL of our knitters choose to supply their own yarns at no cost to our Auxiliary. This is their choice and not a requirement. We are very blessed. I would like to thank all of our knitters for their generosity and caring for our Lions Gate Hospital. You make a huge difference.
