Thousands of beautifully knitted, crocheted and sewn hats have been created by members and community volunteers for Deschutes County chemotherapy patients who have lost their hair during treatment for cancer.  In addition, knitted hats for the homeless are distributed at Bend Community Center and through Mosaic Medical’s mobile medical vans that serve Bethlehem Inn, The Family Kitchen and Shepherd’s House.  Members also provide hats to Mountain Star Relief Nursery for children ages 6 weeks to 4 years of age.  Most recently, breast prostheses have been knitted or crocheted and given to cancer survivors who have undergone mastectomies.
