Anne has been a volunteer in our Do-Art program for two years.

"I brought some yarn in because I heard Do-Art needed yarn. Linda asked me if I'd be willing to teach a couple people to knit, and here I am, two years later!"

Anne jumped right in, volunteering four days a week. And while she's knitted for over 15 years and loves the craft, it's not what has compelled her to offer the massive amount of help she's given over the past 24 months.

"It was the people," she says. "Once you fall in love with these people, you'll never leave. They're so warm and so loving, and every day when I walk in here, they say 'Anne's here! Anne's here!' It's just incredible."
