“Here is a beautiful story that proves that everyone has something to give, no matter their age OR personal struggles. Austin Pollack introduces us to Ms. Sylvia Mooney. At 80 years old, she doesn’t sit around. Instead, she uses her skills to create compassion for others…one stitch at a time. Her crochet creations are donated to non-profit organizations to help our homeless neighbors. You’ll be surprised to learn that she does all of this while dealing with a serious health issue. Well done Sylvia!”
