Afghan drawing raises money for food program

Martha’s pantry, a food outreach of St. Ann Catholic Church, is holding a raffle to raise money to purchase supplies needed to continue the ministry: providing sack lunches to anyone in need on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The grand prize is a handmade afghan, 52 inches square, called Sacred Space. It was designed by Helen Shrimpton and crocheted by Eileen Hartwick in 100 percent acrylic yarn which can be machine washed and dried. Raffle tickets will be available at the St. Ann’s rummage sale Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 which also benefits Martha’s Pantry; and Needles’ Downtown Christmas celebration Dec. 7. The drawing will be held Dec. 8.
