Inspired by a simple request for handmade items from Bob Policastro of Angela’s House, we would like to keep the spirit of giving alive year round by providing warmth to those in need.
Calling all sew-ers, knitters, and crocheters!
We will begin collecting 8” x 8” hand-knit or crocheted squares of any color and any stitch which will be joined together to make Afghans, scarves, and hats for patients receiving chemotherapy, children in emergency shelters or foster care, and medically frail patients receiving care at Angela’s House throughout the year.
Squares take little time and cost very little to make, but a little goes a long way!
We have always been drawn to stories like Stone Soup, and ideas like “it takes a village”. Momee Friends is about connecting families, bringing people together, and giving back to the community. We were reminded by Bob that monetary donations, while they are definitely needed and always welcomed, personal gifts are just as valuable and so much more meaningful. By collecting squares, we will be able to create beautiful gifts which will truly be made with so much care and love by a collective group of people who care, and each gift will be so unique. XOXO
Make a difference in someone’s life by doing what you love to do! It will be so beautiful to see each person who receives a special hand crafted gift from their Square Circle of Friends.
Please mail squares to:
Momee Friends, Inc.
Centereach, NY 11720
