Carolyn Wolkins has been knitting for many years and delivering her work to the Risen Son Christian Village in Council Bluffs, IA and Lydia House at the Open Door Mission Omaha, NE. The Risen Son Offers Assisted Living, Independent Living, Nursing Homes, Continuing Care Communities, and Memory Care. Lydia House at ODM provides emergency and transitional services for single women & families in need of assistance. Food, shelter, clothing, and other basic needs are provided.

This December Carolyn delivered what she had purchased and knitted the last couple of months which was 11 fleece blankets to Risen Son in Council Bluffs yesterday. She was told the fleece blankets will be use for Christmas gifts. Bob and her then delivered the pastels and prints to Lydia House along with knitted and crocheted items. Risen Son and Lydia House were both happy and appreciative. The contact at Lydia House (Open Door Mission) told her they have 75 newborns each year and 150 older kids in residence so the fleece blankets will be perfect for the older ones.
