A group of nearly a dozen employees at Daymark Safety Systems south of Bowling Green have been exercising their fingers for a good cause.
The employees got together to knit and crochet scarves, lap blankets and booties for donation to designated area nursing homes and homeless shelters in advance of the coldest days of winter.
"We had about 10 people involved," said Lynn Ellington.
"They came up with the idea last spring, and we worked on it all summer" and into the fall.
Shawls and lap blankets have recently been delivered to Briar Hill Health Care Campus in North Baltimore for distribution to the senior residents.
A separate donation of hats and small blankets has gone to the Cherry Street Mission in Toledo.
"The group also sold scarves they'd knitted to the employees here at Daymark and raised over $300, which was donated for supplies for the Cocoon Shelter" which serves Wood County women and children fleeting domestic violence, Ellington explained.
