The First United Methodist Ladies have been making hats and mittens, baby hats and mittens items and etc. for our Christmas Tree projects for the less fortunate. We have been doing this 43 years, with 13 knitters. Some started in September and some work on items all year.


For 2019 Season 1230 pieces have been made for the monetary value of $6150.00. All yarn was donated. Many thanks to everyone who donated yarn.


This year these items will go to Impact for people they serve, Salvation Army, FUMC Christmas baskets, Boone elementary schools (Franklin, Lincoln, and Page), Bid-well Riverside, Des Moines, United Community elementary & Pre-school, and Child Serve in Ames.
