Editor’s Note: Trisha Kendall, R.N., B.S.N., O.C.N., has been named a finalist in the Daily Record’s 2011 Health Care Heroes Awards Program for her work with the UMMC Knitting Circle.

The UMMC Knit & Crochet Circle Group, along with many community volunteers, is over halfway toward reaching our goal for the holiday season. We hope to have 100 lap blankets to provide to cancer patients at the University of Maryland Medical Center this year!

If you are looking for a great way to give back this year, but feeling pressured by the economy, consider knitting or crocheting a blanket. You can even gather other volunteers in your community or donate yarn/needles today!
