Beverly's Cares: Clairemont's Joining Hands in San Diego

When Shar, our knitting instructor came to Beverly’s several years ago, so did her commitment to serving the community of San Diego.  Clairemont’s Joining Hands was formed with a group of volunteers that meet at Beverly’s on 6185 Balboa Avenue to join donated blocks together into blankets for charity. Currently the blankets are donated to The Ronald McDonald House, Rady's Children's Hospital, Sharp Hospital Palliative Care, and The Center For Community Solutions.
Anyone can donate blocks that are 7 by 9 inches, knit or crochet, plain or patterned. They can be dropped off at Beverly’s collection box at any time.  Anyone can also come to join donated blocks the last Sunday of every month from 1-3PM. On March 30th Clairemont’s Joining Hands had 14 volunteers show up who joined together 24 finished blankets, over 200 blocks came in and 12 blankets are in progress! These blankets will be divided between the 4 locations mentioned above. Beverly’s would like to thank all those who participated and look forward to seeing everyone again in the months to come. 
“This is our way of enabling our customers to give back in a way that puts their beautiful creations to a wonderful use while letting others know we care”, said Beverly’s knitting instructor Shar Pulver. Store Manager, Peggy Leslie added, “Beverly’s is a family-owned & operated California company that is committed to empowering our stores and their local communities to serve those in need”.
