Project of Hope Lutheran Church Women of Ladysmith

Our church women, individuals in the community, and other church organizations in the community donate money to buy yarn. Our women then buy the yarn and take it to Portage to the prison.

The men, who are in for life sentences, knit or crochet mittens, scarves, and hats. The left-over yarn is made into lap robes or art.

When they are finished, we pick up all the articles they have made. We bring them back to Ladysmith and distribute them to the schools in the area and to organizations that help the poor. The lap robes go to individuals or to a nursing home.
