Knit One, Purl Two: Teach Knitting to Patients


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


208 Valley RoadNew Canaan, CT 06840


Show patients in our new residential eating disorders program located on the second floor of our Main House how to knit and to also appreciate the value of knitting. Choose Monday, Tuesday OR Friday from 6:30-7:30 pm to offer your talents and supportive conversation. Your ongoing (weekly) presence offers you and the patients an opportunity to develop a rapport and to pick up any threads of conversations from the previous weeks. It's all in good fun and gives patients a creative outlet for eating disorder recovery. To ensure that you will have what you need each time you volunteer, you will select easy to use (simple) knitting supplies and yarn and the hospital will reimburse you for your purchases. Hospital orientation and criminal background check are required and ongoing volunteer supervision is provided.
