Once again we are embarking upon a new project! We will be making trips to Moore Square where there is a large population of homeless people. Each trip we make, we will be loading up our green wagon with food, water and supplies to handout to anyone in need. Our goal is to let these people know that we care! During each trip we will visit, offer support and a few kind words. Anyone interested in helping, donating or joining us email me at [email protected]
Some ideas of what to donate:
gift cards to fast food restaurants
granola bars, sandwiches, sweet treats,cold water

We will be collecting donations of crocheted and knitted baby hats, sweaters and blankets to World Vision's Knit for Kids program. These items will be going to impoverished areas such as Armenia, Nicaragua, Swaziland, and Tanzania. Just continue to mail the donations to From Ewe to You and include a note that you would like them to go to the Knit for Kids program. From Ewe to You will package everything and make sure it gets to the appropriate place.
You can use your own patterns for pullover sweaters, caps and blankets or use one of the recommended patterns that are found at the link below.

Why not celebrate by:
- holding a canned food drive
- volunteering at a local soup kitchen or shelter
- visit an elementary school or senior center to talk about nutrition
The possibilities are endless!

In the WakeMed Heartbeat newsletter- it's nice to know our donations are so appreciated:
My mother was a recipient of a lap robe from the sewing volunteers at
Raleigh Campus. She was an inpatient at the hospital and complained of
being cold every time she got up to get in a chair. Her legs would ache
(she was diabetic) more when she was cold. I brought her one of the lap
robes – it was quilted in bright colored blocks. It was so cheerful and so
warm to my mother's legs. She would call attention to her lap robe to
her visitors and tell them the volunteers gave it to her. She used the lap
robe every day until she died. I am sure those volunteers who make the
lap robes do not fully realize the impact they make on patients and the
patient's families and the comfort and pleasures they give. They are
excellent ambassadors for WakeMed and for Volunteer Services. Their
gifts and labors of love keep giving. I now have the lap robe and,
because it was mother's favorite, I will also treasure it.
Often after visiting
the room of someone
who seems lonely or
depressed, I go to
Volunteer Services to
find a lap robe to tuck
a r o u n d t h e i r
knees. They are always
so thankful and
can't believe it's a free
gift from a sewing or
I also rock babies in
the NICU and admire
the beautiful caps on
their tiny heads.
Thank you for all you
Approximately 2 weeks before Christmas, a
nurse on 3A asked me if the volunteers still
had the lap blankets! When I affirmed, she
asked me to bring one to a special patient because
she was elderly and always cold! Fortunately,
I went back and picked out a Christmas
blanket about the size of half a bed sheet:
green, red and white, double-sided with really
neat designs. When it was given to her husband,
he thanked me so much, and told me
how much his wife would appreciate it! The
next week, I happened to be delivering mail
to their room, she was sitting up with the
blanket wrapped around herself! Her husband
told her I was the one who gave her the blanket!
She again thanked me. When I told her
she could take it home, her eyes just lit up!
There is not a time that goes by where I don't
receive thanks for the volunteers and what we
do for patients, family and staff! Usually, it's
"THANKS for volunteering"!
