The Volunteers of General Needs wrapped Holiday gifts Sunday December 11, 2016

What happens when grade and middle school children fundraise to buy yarn? Then donate that yarn to senior Knitting and Crochet Guilds across Long Island? You get hundreds of scarves, hats, gloves and incredible blankets that along with 400 brand new coats will be wrapped then donated as holiday gifts to our veterans in need on Long Island.
