EGA Dogwood members are making fun print pillowcases for  Ryan's Case for Smiles, a non-profit organization that provides them to seriously ill children in hospitals across the country. Visit their website for instructions on sewing a pillowcase or two - be careful - it's addicting!

Chapter members knitted caps for full term and premature infants, and knit heart squares for mothers to provide their scent to their newborns in NICU, and are then provided to various local hospitals.
Chapter members knit cross squares for patients receiving cancer treatment. Squares are provided to local cancer treatment centers. These hand made items give patients something to hold during treatment  to provide comfort that someone is praying for them.
