On Wednesday, January 3, Ines Basso Glick , the Founder and Executive Director of Care to Knit, served as Guest Speaker at the monthly meeting of Manhasset American Legion Post 304. Care to Knit has been a long-time friend of the American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary. For the past several years, Care to Knit members have knit and crocheted hundreds of beautiful blankets for our veterans at both the Northport and Bronx VA Medical Centers. In addition, they have donated their handmade blankets to donors and recipients of organ transplants, a tradition they began at the Northport VA Medical Center. They also knit baby hats and booties for hospitals and shelters. What was once a small local organization has grown into a very generous national group.
In recognition of their great work, Commander Peter Killian presented Ines Glick with a donation to assist Care to Knit in carrying out its work. Elizabeth Parrella, Vice President and Treasurer of the American Legion Auxiliary, presented Ms. Glick with a Certificate of Appreciation for their assistance to our veterans. Ms. Glick also made a presentation, a red, white and blue blanket commemorating all the love that has gone into their work supporting our men and women who have served our nation.
