Our group of teenage girls went to Hearts Knit Together for a service project. They had so much fun touring the facility and helping assemble kits. It was so inspiring to see the thoughtful, loving care taken to put the care packages together. The packages are so beautiful. What a gift to children and women who are in need of some safety and comfort! I was inspired seeing that service can involve beauty and attention to individual needs and interests.
There's an atmosphere of peace, hope, and love every time I drop off donations to Hearts Knit Together. I am amazed at what a marvelous inspiration Linda is to us all! She's appreciative and proud of every little act of service. She channels the generosity and charity of thousands to help thousands of others. I'm honored and blessed to be a small part of this great work, to bring some comfort and cheer into the lives of others who are going through tough times.
I've been associated with Linda Simmons for almost 10 years and have watched her grow Hearts Knit Together from a tiny charitable organization in her basement,fulfilling 100 kits a year, to what it is today where they will be helping over 5,000 individuals in crisis in 2015. The atmosphere in the project rooms as the volunteers create these beautiful kits, (some have called them hygiene kits on steroids) has such a loving spirit. The men and women prepare every kit with beautifully themed and color coordinated packages. Every recipient feels the kits were made especially for them, and they realize that they are cared by those in this community. I believe so much in what they are doing, that I am now on their Board of Directors and am so excited to see what's in the future for them. Maxine Rasmussen - Board of Directors Hearts Knit Together
