Important Information

Knitters Needed

Kennedy seniors have done an incredible job of donating baby layettes to Option's Healthiest Baby program. These layettes are given to moms and moms-to-be who are in need. If you'd like to contribute as a knitter, we could always use extra hands to make afghans and sweater sets!
