KC Busy Hands of Leisure Days Gives Back to Zephyrhills

In 2011, a group of women decided to give back to their community. That was when KC Busy Hands was formed at Leisure Days RV Resort in Zephyrhills. Since then, they have donated thousands of hours and hand made items to schools, churches, hospice centers and hospitals.

Today. the group has over 50 residents who have donated over 8,000 hours to this cause. Together they knit, crochet and cro-hook, bringing much of the materials from home. Other residents also join in by donating extra yarn or even purchasing new yarn for the group to use.

Homeless students, new mothers, veterans and nursing home and hospice residents have been the grateful recipients of afghans and lap robes. In all, the group donated 135 lap robes and afghans to the community. During Christmas, they donated afghans to families and even some Leisure Days residents.

828 hats were donated to schools and the Samaritan project. One resident made 450 of those hats alone! The students who received the hats were excited to pick out their hats, and the joy on their faces made it all worthwhile for the Leisure Days residents who spend their time giving back to those around them.

“Kindness is like a boomerang,” said Anne Astles, a member of the group. “it keeps coming back.”

This year, the group  has touched the lives of over 1000 residents of Zephyrhills, and over 2000 since they started giving back to the winter community at Leisure Days. In the coming year, the residents hope to have the same impact on those around them.

With all of their handmade items, the group used more than $2,000 worth of yarn. If you are interested in donating funds or yarn to the group contact Leisure Days at 813-788-2631.
