Members of the Knitting Club at the Merrimack Library, the Our Lady of Mercy Knitting Group and members of St. James UMC have joined together to contribute hand knit scarves and hats to Operation Care For Troops. We also contribute handwritten cards to express gratitude and prayers of goodwill to our active duty service men and women. These and other items are packed at the National Guard Armory in Nashua three times per year and sent to our deployed military personnel.
We provided 320 scarves and 22 hats for the November 2021 shipment to our troops.
Don’t put your knitting needles and crochet hooks away. There is also a local ministry to homeless veterans and their families.
