Shawls of Love Volunteers Hard at Work Knitting Red Caps for Babies Born in February in Honor of American Heart Month

by Front Porch News

 

 

Volunteers from Sulphur Springs have joined the American Heart Association in connection with The Children’s Heart Foundation to celebrate American Heart Month by knitting and crocheting red hats for babies born in February at Christus Mother Frances Hospital. Little Hats, Big Hearts honors babies, moms, and heart healthy lives in a very special way. Nationwide supporters knit and crochet red hats to be given out to thousands of babies in our country during American Heart Month in order to empower moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same.

Together we are working to raise awareness, provide resources, and inspire moms to take their family’s heart health to heart while also raising awareness about Congenital Heart Defects.

Little Hats, Big Hearts started in February 2014 in Chicago, IL and collected 300 hats in the first year. The program has now expanded to more than 40 states.
The Shawls of Love group in Sulphur Springs began participating last year. This February we will be donating 50 red hats to the Neonatal unit at Christus Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs.
The Shawls of Love Group also made and donated 11 Blankets and 5 Cancer Caps to Home bound, Hospice and Cancer Patients.
If you are interested in learning to Knit or Crochet please join the ladies on the 4th Monday of each month at 10:00 AM at the Sulphur Springs Senior Citizens Center 150 Martin Luther King Blvd.
Stacey Wetzel, Sulphur Springs Imaging, will deliver the Blankets and Cancer Caps.
