On December 21, 2017, the people in Helping Hands collected all their beautiful handiworks to deliver them to Mary’s Place in Kenmore, Washington. They made the following Christmas delivery:
- More then 20 hand-made pillow cases
- 2 beautiful hand-made quilts
- Fleece throws
- Many personal care items
- Some packets of hot chocolate and some cookies were added
The staff at Mary’s Place were so thankful for the gifts.
In addition to the hand-made items, a gift of money was sent to the home office of Mary’s Place for use at the Kenmore location.
