The Legacy Knit and Crochet Club works year-round making hats, scarves, blankets, dolls, and washcloths. Last year, about 20 volunteers (mostly residents!) produced over 4,500 pieces of handmade items.
At their 2021 distribution event, the items were given to 13 area organizations that serve low-income and/or at-risk individuals and families including: Christ United Methodist Church of Plano; Cochran Chapel; Dallas Police Department; Hope’s Door; Jewish Family Service; Plano ISD; Plano Police Department; Minnie’s Food Pantry; National Council of Jewish Women; Mosaic Family Services; Streetside Showers; and Temple Emanu-El.
Since The Legacy Knit and Crochet Club began in 2010, over 33,000 handmade pieces have been donated to the greater Dallas community.
