On December 20, 2016, seven regular members of the "Karing Knitters" group, Peggy Fleming, Barbara Heimowitz, Harriet Skelly, Jan Barnes, Lina Terferi, Rita Weikal, and Debbie Schriber, took BART to San Francisco and donated 83 scarves and 138 hats to St. Anthony's. This was our 5th year knitting scarves and hats for the homeless living in San Francisco.
The "Karing Knitters" group began 6 years ago with three members from Danville and two members living in Castro Valley. The group has grown and changed over the years and we now have two groups of knitters who meet twice monthly in Danville and in Castro Valley. A huge thanks go to the eleven regular members, Phyllis Clark, Melanie Gutterson, Marcelle Roise, and Ann Cygielman and the knitters mentioned above plus some knitters from the Alamo Women's Club; Susan Klein, Kathy Berger, Annette Cohn, Sandi McKae, plus friends of friends in the knitting groups who donate occasionally or one time only: Ruth Yu, Judy Ginsburg, Maria Salcedo, Jean Yang.
