(Lakewood, Colo. – June 2, 2015) The Standley Lake Library Yarn and Needle Arts Group is working with the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center to make and collect chemocaps for chemo patients, and they’re inviting other knitters in the community to participate.
Through July, local area residents are invited to attend the Standley Lake Library Yarn and Needle Arts Group to make caps together, or residents may drop off caps at the Library.
“The Yarn and Needle Arts Group here at Standley Lake is relatively new but growing, and we hope to do one charitable project a year,” said Neila Achter, the group’s coordinator. “The Standley Lake Library serves as an integral part of the process by giving us a place to meet and by serving as a collection point for donations.”
The Yarn and Needle Arts Group meets at the Standley Lake Library from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month. Meetings are open to anyone with an interest in hand arts, and all skill levels are welcome.
“The library is also at the center of our community,” Neila added. “We’re hoping that others in our community would love to participate in making chemocaps for cancer patients.”
The Standley Lake Library is located at 8485 Kipling Street in Arvada. For hours and directions to the library, visit http://jeffcolibrary.org/locations/standley-lake-library.
