Allen Insurance and Financial recently delivered dozens of hats and skeins of yarn to the Chemo Caps for Kids program run by the Commonwealth Financial Network.
In addition, hats knitted by local people were delivered last week to the Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing in Lewiston. Kimberly Edgar of Allen’s Camden office is coordinating the program locally.
“We are grateful to Over the Rainbow in Rockland for yarn and hat donations and to Cashmere Goat in Camden for their help with publicity to their customers,” said Edgar, noting that a large of Midcoast knitters, all pretty much anonymous, have dedicated serious time and creativity to this cause.
Anyone interested in donating yarn or knitting time to this project can call Kimberly Edgar at 230-5831.
