Knitting group warms hands, hearts of Little Flower Assistance Center clients

Charitable endeavors rarely endure without the generous contributions of volunteers, like the Meadowood Handicrafters, a women's knitting group that donates clothing and quilts to help those in need.

Catholic Charities’ Little Flower Assistance Center—a food, clothing and assistance center in Aurora for those facing crises—receives the hand-crafted items from the volunteer group.

The talented women of Meadowood Handicrafters regularly donate lovely knitted hats, mittens, lap quilts, and tote bags. They also provide food to the center through their parish, St. Michael the Archangel in Aurora.

The group was founded in 2010 by the late Donna Garcia, who revitalized the voluntary homeowners association for the Meadowood community located north of Hampden. When one association member expressed interest in creating a group for crafters and quilters, Garcia gathered a group of quilters and knitters to volunteer.

The group honors her legacy and continues their participation in the Little Flower Assistance Center’s annual donation collection called “Joy Drive.” During the drive, volunteers distribute gift boxes to lower-income school children and residents of Aurora senior housing communities.

For more information, visit Little Flower's webpage or call (303) 360-9686.
