Olivia Taylor and Katherine Bolles have turned crocheting into a healing process.
When the two First Presbyterian Day School seniors graduate, they will have sent countless crocheted creations to people in need as part of an organization they began.
The two started Hooks for Hope, a club that crochets items for struggling adults and children. So far, more than 50 students have joined the group.
The organization has made headbands for girls at Hephzibah Childrens Home as well as washcloths, shawls and baby blankets for Covenant Care Services. They have created stuffed animals for children and seat cushions for churches in the mountains of Peru.
Taylor and Bolles have given more than 500 hours of community service through Hooks for Hope, in addition to volunteering with other organizations, according to the school.
In the future, they plan to make blankets and shawls for women and girls rescued from human trafficking.
