NYC Love Scarf Project 2011 Delivery Update

From Leon Seidman:

Yesterday we delivered well over 100 scarves to cancer patients at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. The scarves were beautiful and the patients, nurses and administratoors were so appreciative. As you know, it is such a moving experience.Often the patients even request favorite colors and we are always able to find something they like. The nurses and administrators tell us that the economy has reduced the donations they get from companies of things like toiletries and cosmetics so they look forward to the scarves that much more.
