HEALING SHAWLS FROM COMPASSION & CARE TEAM
Glen Rock resident, Lucy Cadwallader, contacted Zion with the following request. For the past 6 years, a free program with 16 volunteers called Compassion & Care Team within the York County Coroner's Office has reached out to families who have lost loved ones. They provide comforting letters, grief support, support group information as needed. Now they wish to offer Healing Shawls to mothers, grandmothers, care givers who have lost a child. If you have free time to knit/crochet for this worthy cause, please call Lucy (717-873-4971). She will provide the yarn and pattern. Interested? Please contact Lucy directly. (This is unrelated to the Prayer Shawl Ministry at Zion.)
