Common Threads support group donates to local students
Members of the Skiff Hospice Common Threads bereavement support group recently made a large donation of handmade items that will help keep Aurora Heights students warm this winter. Common Threads is a support group for individuals who have experienced the death of a loved one and enjoy knitting or crocheting.
“One of the purposes of the Common Threads support group is to donate all the items they make back to the community,” said Jennifer Barnett, bereavement coordinator. “While speaking with Doug Smith, a teacher at Aurora Heights and hospice volunteer, he indicated how much of a need there is at the schools for winter weather items, such as hats and mittens.”
Barnett presented the idea to group facilitators Diana Cumpton and Kaye Swarts, who loved the idea of helping young children. The members of the group spent many hours making scarves, hats and mittens that were donated to students in need at the Aurora Heights.
