44 Items donated to local hospital

We just donated 4 baby blankets and 40 preemie and new born hats to our local hospital,
Waccamaw Community Hospital, here in South Carolina. I have kept track of how much we spend for shipping and monetary donations this past year and have come very close the the $500 mark. So we have decided to donate more locally to save on shipping charges. $500 will buy a lot of yarn! We will still donate to a couple of our favorite charities but maybe not so much or so often.
