MADE FROM THE HEART


Thank you to Katrina, with District 287, and her students for the cute handmade bags and greeting cards. They made them so the individuals that receive items from Granny's Closet - MN can get them in a cute bag with a handmade card! The students recently learned how to crochet, and they even shared some fabulous dish clothes they made! We love the support and caring Katrina and her students have shown us!
