IMPORTANT Update to the October, 2022 Calendar of Local Events

The King George Group will not meet this month.


An Important Message From the Board

Concerning COVID-19

September 30, 2022

Please note: Masks will be required at our annual Retreat on October 1. The event will occur, rain or shine. 

There is yet another iteration of COVID going around and incidence rates are on the rise again.  Every month, at the Board meeting, we discuss From the Heart’s “relationship” with COVID and we have decided that, for the time being, we will continue to require the use of masks while in the workshop and also request that people practice reasonable social distancing. Everybody will have to sign the register on the front desk in the hopefully unlikely event we need to engage in any form of contact tracing.

As always, we request that you do not come to the workshop if you are feeling unwell or running a temperature or if you have been in the company of someone who has been unwell. The workshop at 1114 Westbriar Drive in Henrico is now open for people to come in to sit and craft during regular hours which are 10am until 2pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. A total of 7 people (5 crafters and 2 elves) will be allowed in the workshop at any given time, not to include people who come in for just a couple of minutes to get yarn for a future From the Heart project.

Everybody will have to sign the register on the front desk in the event we need to engage in any form of contact tracing.
We continue to ask that you DO NOT attend ANY meeting if you are feeling unwell in any way or if you have recently been in the company of somebody who was unwell.

Thank you all so much and I’m looking forward to seeing you at the workshop soon.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have. You can email or phone me directly or use the Contact Form HERE.

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!

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