In the article it was mentioned that Charles could use additional skeins of red, white and blue yarn to continue crocheting afghans for the Veterans in Fayetteville, NC. Prior to this Charles crocheted blankets for Military personnel deployed to Afghanistan. His request was answered by the Oak Island American Legion Post 454. Post members along with Wal Mart store manager,
Jimmy Creech prepared a gift card for Charles to purchase more yarn and the Post members purchased enough yarn to keep him busy for a while. They asked him to donate a blanket, which they raffled off at their November 6th NC District Meeting. All the proceeds went for more yarn to crochet afghans.
