Members of Creative Spirit, crochet and knitting group, (that meets every Friday at St. Brendan Catholic Church) donated nearly two hundred “made with love” hats and scarves to Brunswick County Homeless Coalition (BCHC) and Brunswick County StreetReach (BCSTR). Pastor Ryszard Kolodziej, (center) new Pastor of St. Brendan, blessed all the handmade items before Eileen Brown, Creative Spirit member (standing far left) who coordinated efforts with Lynn Yencik, BCHC Volunteer Director (standing far right), presented Gary Phelps and Donna Phelps, Vice President and President BCSTR (far left back row) and Dianne Cherry, BCSTR Board member (pictured next to Lynn) with the items that will become comfort from the cold formally men, women, and children in our area this winter.
