Handmade for Hospice knitters bring Warmth to Veterans

Veterans cared for by the staff of Compass Regional Hospice are recognized in many ways for their military service. One community group adds a special touch to the We Honor Veterans program my making lap blankets for each veteran under hospice care in Queen Anne’s, Kent and Caroline Counties.

Handmade for Hospice is a group based out of the Kent Island Senior Center, which is located at 891 Love Point Road in Stevensville. In addition to knitting blankets for veterans under hospice care, the senior center volunteers operate a retail shop in which they sell knitted and crocheted items. Proceeds from the shop sales are donated to Compass Regional Hospice.

“We are so grateful for this group of knitters whose handiwork has supported us for many years,” says Courtney Williams, manager, volunteer and professional services, Compass Regional Hospice. “Our veterans appreciate the warmth of these handmade lap blankets that are then given to a family member as a keepsake.”
