    Millie Bewley has been a knitter for more than three decades. Now in her 80s, she’s found a way to give back to the greater community with her skills, and she’s inviting a few of her AlmaVia of Camarillo neighbors to help. The group is called the Nifty Knitters. Together, they make prayer shawls for local hospice patients.

    Every Saturday, the ladies – all in their 80s and 90s – grab some yarn and start knitting in the library of the assisted living community they call home. They laugh and chat about their grand-kids and great-grandkids. It’s a time for each of them to share stories with one another.

    Research shows groups like the Nifty Knitters are beneficial to seniors, as this type of interaction fosters socialization, keeps them active and gives them a sense of purpose. Recently, the group donated more than a dozen of these shawls to an area hospice program. They plan to donate even more in the coming months. 

    April is National Volunteer Month, and the Nifty Knitters would make for a great story about giving back, no matter your age. Would you be interested in doing story on the Nifty Knitters? If so, contact me, Chelsea Wilson, at 913-317-2225 or [email protected].
