Esther Connell, a talented and energetic 94-year-old Clearwater Beach woman, enjoys knitting and crocheting for people she loves.

Last winter, Connell heard about Clothes to Kids, a local charity whose sole mission is to provide new and gently used clothes to low-income children in Pinellas County for free. Touched by their mission, she immediately started knitting winter ski hats for Clothes To Kids. Her hats are popular with children from kindergarten to high school and fly off the shelves as soon as they appear on the store rack.

To kick off the fall season, Connell recently donated 15 more ski hats to Clothes to Kids and plans to continue making contributions to the charity.
