Jan Baylor, staff member at the Bent County Correctional Facility, delivered crocheted hats, mittens and scarves to a class of students at the Las Animas CDS Head Start Preschool. The crocheted items were made by "The Crochet Group" at the Bent County Correctional Facility.
The Crochet Group was started back in 2011 and now have 21 members who crochet items from donated yarn to give to many community agencies. Some of the places they have donated include Las Animas School District, Arkansas Valley Pregnancy Center, the Bent County Nursing Home and Disabled Veterans center.
The group has depleted their supply of yarn and is reaching out for donations. Donations of yarn can be dropped off at the Bent County Democrat office and will be picked up by CCA staff. Any assistance with this worthwhile project is greatly appreciated.
