Hats and Blessing Bags for Homeless

Our Activity Department and a group of devoted residents have developed a project to give back and help others in need. What started out as an afternoon craft project of knitting hats turned into a facility-wide race to loom-knit as many hats before the winter season and donate them to local homeless shelters. We have almost reached our goal of 75 hats!

Along with the hats we will assemble “Blessing Bags” filled with non-­perishable snacks, personal hygiene supplies, and other age appropriate items. These items are put together in a gallon size ziplock bag and delivered to those in need. Below is a list of items we need donated! Contact Molly in the Activities Department if you have any questions or would like to help!


Obtain as many supplies donated by November 14th!
Items may be dropped off at Avamere Rehabilitation of Hillsboro Monday – Friday 8AM 4PM by appt with Molly or left in our donation bin at the central nursing station.
