From the Heart Workshop Remains Closed but our Outreach Continues
The new system we have put in place to facilitate members coming to the workshop to drop off items and to select yarn by appointment only is working well. Everybody has been very respectful of the need to honor the safety protocols we have put in place and so, given that it looks like this virus might be around for a while, the Board made the decision at our last Board meeting to continue to keep the workshop closed (except for the 1.5 hour drop-offs/pick-ups on Sunday afternoons) through the end of the year, at the earliest. This was not an easy decision for us to reach but, in the interest of the continued health and well-being of our membership, we thought it the wisest thing to do.
Tricia Ennis, President of From the Heart
From our humble beginnings…
…in a Starbucks coffee shop in 2001, to our close to 1,800 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.
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!

Volunteers are angels in disguise. Spread your wings…Join From the Heart!
