Thank you, Suffield Knitters, for Donating to PMHA's Giving Tree!
On January 17, 2020, PMHA's Resident Services Department staff visited the Suffield Knitting Group at Suffield Elementary School. The Suffield Knitters are students in kindergarten through 5th grade who, through the Leader In Me Program at their school, learned how to knit over the course of the past semester. The students each knit a hat for babies and/or toddlers. Then, these hats were donated to PMHA's Giving Tree. Thank you, Suffield Knitters, for your hard work and generosity!
