Respect Life Club encourages community to Crochet for a Cause

The McNicholas Respect Life Club is advertising and encouraging others to participate in their newly founded event, “Crochet for a Cause.”  Crochet for a Cause is a collection of knitted and crocheted items and fleece tied blankets to be donated to Pregnancy Center East by the Respect Life Club.  This event is open to all the McNicholas community as well as relatives and friends of faculty and students who share the talent of knitting and crocheting.

Respect Life Club member and junior Lily Deller took it upon herself to advertise the event to the school and strongly encourages all crocheters and knitters, like herself, to participate.  “It’s a great opportunity to use your talents to make something that you may never have made before like a baby hat, bib, or blanket,” Deller said. “It’s rewarding to help others in need.”

Deller created a page on the website Pinterest which displays possible ideas and patterns for donations.

Donations can be dropped off in Spanish teacher and Rockets for Life moderator Tracey Canisalez’s room in the foreign language hall through Friday, Dec. 13.
