The creative and talented seniors who make up the “Heights and Hill Handicraft­ers” are busy. At holiday time, they donated all the hats, scarves, dolls and blankets they had spent the year knitting and crocheting to the Mother-Baby unit of Long Island College Hospital (LICH) of Brooklyn.

Now what?

Well, they start all over again, that’s what. A mere few months after their last donation, the Handicrafters once again brought a bundle of booties a dollop of dolls and a bevy of blankets to benefit the moms receiving care at a special LICH prenatal program for uninsured women. The gifts, lovely in their own right, also function as an incentive to encourage the moms to come back for their post-natal care.

The Handicrafters are part of the Heights and Hill Community Council, a leading provider of social services for senior residents of Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill.

Pictured, mom-to-be Natasha Pratt surveys the goodies with the Council’s Services Coordinator, Gail Otis, as nurse Ramona Vega looks on.

LICH is located at 339 Hicks Street.
