The Chicks with Sticks is a group within the Johnson County Senior Center. The group often knits and crochets items as part of a hobby.
This year, these members are putting these skills
to charitable use by providing hats and scarfs to keep local children warm this winter.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive. Laurel Elementary Principal Brenda Eggers sent a thank you card from the school along with piles of letters from grateful students thanking the Chicks with Sticks for their contribution.
Students mentioned the hard work the group put into the items and how much
they loved the contributions.
So far, the group has
provided 57 hats and scarves and continues to make more for school children within
the county. Anyone with
new or like-new yarn they would like to donate can drop it off at the Johnson County Senior Center. Call (423) 772-8883 for more information.
