Community Service Project – Little Hats Big Hearts

Come crochet or knit with us on Monday December 10th at 10 AM, as we make little red hats for babies born in the month of February – also known as Heart Health Awareness Month. The Little Hats, Big Hearts program is a joint effort of the American Heart Association and the Children’s Heart Foundation to bring awareness to both Women’s Heart Health and Congenital Heart Defects.

It’s time for our second gathering! We will still meet again in January to get ready for delivery to the American Heart Association for distribution at local hospitals. If you are unable to attend but would still like to participate please feel free to drop off your donations (of either yarn or completed projects) to the schools front office. If you have any questions please feel free to PM me.

At the gatherings we will provide patterns as suggested by the program and have also received generous yarn donations so we have yarn for your projects. Should you want to provide your own yarn it must be either acrylic or cotton red or mostly red if you choose a variegated yarn. Please keep in mind the skin sensitivities of newborn babies as you make your yarn selections. They also ask that the hats don’t have any bows or buttons that can easily come off. Please bring your own needles, hooks, and other necessary tools.

If you have any questions about this project or how you can help please feel free to reach out to me!
