Richmond Workshop: October 1, 2023
Now that our social area is being used more frequently by members, we want to remind everyone not to leave food or food containers in the trash. You are welcome to eat or drink in the workshop, just be sure to take any wrappers, bags, or food item with you when you leave. This will discourage any unwanted little creatures. Thank you, in advance, for your support of this request.
Masks are now optional for anyone entering the workshop.
Please be sure to record your information legibly on the newly formatted “ins and out’s” form on the clipboard. We are transferring this data to a computer format and your help is needed to make our data entry easier. Thank you for your assistance with this project.
As always, we request that you do not come to the workshop if you are feeling unwell, have a temperature or if you have been in the company of someone who has been unwell.

From our humble beginnings…
…in a Starbucks coffee shop in 2001, to our close to 2,000 member base today, the volunteer organization From the Heart continues its charitable mission.
From the Heart is involved in numerous projects, from making chemo hats for local cancer centers, preemie baby hats for the tiniest of our recipients, sleeping bags and warm mitten sets for the homeless in the Richmond community.
From the Heart volunteers are constantly finding new opportunities to help, and encourage anyone who knows of an unmet need in the community to please bring it to our attention.
We invite anyone interested in joining our cause to join us by email, web site, or check the latest newsletter for our schedule and just show up!
