Members of the Bayshore Hooks and Needles group have created close to 300 soap sacks, which have been donated to the United Way of Monmouth and Ocean County (UWMOC), via Stacy Weiner of Loch Harbor. Weiner recognized the need for the soap sacks while volunteering at the Bradley Beach food pantry and began making and distributing the soap sacks throughout Monmouth County. The initiative is known as “S.A.C.K.ยญ Supporting A Community With Kindness. The sacks are big enough to hold a boxed bar of soap and are created using cotton yarn so that they can be used as a washcloth. The group continues to make shawls for Meridian Hospice and blankets, hats and cardiology pillow covers for Monmouth Medical center.

The group welcomes new members and meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at the Hazlet Library, 251 Middle Road from 1 to 3 p.m. Donations of new, unused yarn is always appreciated. For additional information, contact Diana Zambrano, Branch Manager of the Hazlet Library at (732) 264ยญ7164.
