An ongoing project is knitting hats, booties and blankets for the NICU and the HealthStart Clinic at Overlook Hospital. We also knit Prayer Shawls and Chemo Caps for distribution to those in need of comfort. We have contributed much appreciated blankets and hats to Overlook over the years. 
Another group project is knitting or crocheting purple hats for the Shaken Baby Syndrome program. We have begun to donate chemo caps to the Veterans undergoing treatment in NJ in cooperation with Little Flower Catholic Church in Berkeley Heights.
