On your way to class you may have noticed mannequins displayed near the front office. Ms. Burke and several of the students have been applying their crochet skills to flaunt the hats they have created. While crocheting captivates the attention of students, the purpose of these hats are to give back to the community. Since 2015, Ms. Burke has developed her hobby into something profound. In the same year, she donated 200 crocheted hats to the Safe Home of Augusta, GA. When asked of her ambition for creating her charity, she stated, “Being able to introduce students to the job of giving back to those in need, leaves you a great feeling of pride.” Taking the time out to support others can give them a great abundance of hope so, encourage others to alleviate the hopelessness of our community for a great purpose.  

On October 2, 2017, the crotchet club donated their work of crotchet hats to the children and ladies at Safe Homes. Ms. Erica Powers, the representative over the Safe Homes operation, arrived to pick up the hats from the crotchet club. Safe Homes provides people many services such as financial assistance and legal advice, but they also need additional help in providing other necessities. This is one of many reasons why she is so thankful for the crotchet club. Ms. Powers says that ‘‘… it definitely shows that the community cares and it is an act of kindness because I know they really took their time and effort to make these and I am sure that the children and ladies will love them.’’  

The crotchet club mentioned that it was a really good experience, and they are so excited to make more hats to be donated again.
