LANCASTER – Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley employees Sandy Petersen and Liz Spinella-Jones crocheted more than 140 scarves and recently donated the scarves to Grace Resource Center in Lancaster.
Grace Resource Center in Lancaster serves more than 15,000 people in the Antelope Valley each month. Their vision is to empower people to thrive, not just survive, through training, education, food, clothing, shelter, and medical care.
In April, Sandy Petersen began crocheting scarves to donate and invited Liz Spinella-Jones to join her. Each scarf, depending on length, took one to three hours to complete. Both women were taught to crochet by their mothers.
Sandy and Liz’s generosity aligns with Kaiser Permanente’s social mission, company officials said.
“Kaiser Permanente is so fortunate to have such caring and generous people working here in the Antelope Valley,” stated Linda Lawson, RN, MSN, Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley Chief Administrative Officer. “Sandy and Liz went above and beyond to help those in need during the brisk winter months in the Antelope Valley.”
