Every Monday, the members of the Knitting Group at Atria Darien get together, have a cup of tea and knit while chatting.

As a result of the weekly gatherings, many clients of the Darien-based Person-to-Person have been the beneficiaries of the ladies' talents and industry.

According to Beth Blake, engage life associate, the ladies have donated hundreds of knitted items to Person-to-Person, including cradle blankets, sweaters, mittens, hats, receiving blankets and more.

"Atria residents thrive and participate in activities where they know that their contributions are valued, and enjoy access to opportunities and support that help them keep making a positive difference in our world," she said.

"We are delighted to receive these wonderful gifts for our clients from the Knitting Group," P2P Executive Director Ceci Maher said.

"The pieces are appreciated not only for their functionality but also because they represent the care and compassion that these ladies have for others."

Person-to-Person provides low-income individuals and families living in lower Fairfield County with basic emergency services.
