2020 and the pandemic are providing both challenges and opportunities! Life does go on, and children continue to become ill or injured, requiring hospitalization. Thanks to the enthusiastic participation in last year’s Miles of Pillowcase Smiles (MOPS), 851 delightful pillowcases have been delivered to our 8 hospitals where children receive care, as well as Ronald McDonald House. Feedback from families and staff has been very positive.
Can we count on your support this year? Please forward the attached poster to your members. Because of the pandemic, guidelines include isolating the laundered and packaged pillowcases for two weeks before they are collected for delivery to the hospitals.

We had our second Tuffet workshop with Jacqui last week and we were all pleased to have completed our tuffets.
Members were very generous with their donations for residents of Senior Homes in our area this Christmas. 25 Christmas stockings were also made to put the items in.
