Remembering Doris Meyer: Many Mothers Volunteer

Many Mothers is saddened to announce that a longtime volunteer and supporter, Doris Meyer, passed away recently. If you’ve received a hand-knit baby hat from Many Mothers in the past nine years, chances are it was knitted by Doris. In her words, “I started to knit and found that I liked making baby hats. I don’t do fancy hats, just simple ones that don’t take long to finish. It gives me a lot of pleasure to know that new mothers and their babies will enjoy these colorful creations.” Since 2013, Doris knitted hundreds of hats for the families we serve. We offer deep condolences to Doris’s husband Richard. Her generous spirit will be missed by many.
