Elderly Crochet Limb Caps for Veterans

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- A group of senior citizens, who live at a local assisted living community, use their crocheting skills to keep veterans with lost limbs warm this winter.

The seniors are apart of the ‘Crocheting for a Cause Club' at Atria Salisbury.

The club is fairly new and has six members. The group's latest project features 12-inch limb caps and blankets.

The ladies meet every Thursday at 6p.m. to make them.  Activities Director John Swincinski said they have a couple other ideas up their sleeves.

"They will also be working on caps for arms and wrists," Swincinski said.

Swincinski said the group will work through The American Coalition of Amputees to get the limb caps to veterans.

The club welcomes anyone, with crocheting skills, from the community to join. You can do so by calling Atria Salisbury at 410.546.9997.
