Once a week, older adults gather at the VWV office located at 50 Bridge Street, Suite 203 , to knit, crochet, and discuss issues while practicing English. They charity knitting gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment as well as engagement in the community. In the past the women have enjoyed doing “field trips” to deliver their knitted projects to various charities like baby hats to hospital newborn nursery and warm winter hats, mittens and scarves for new arrivals at the International Institute.
