Little Hats, Big Hearts

The Advocacy and Wellness committee is looking for volunteers to help knit or crochet red baby hats. The hats will be distributed to babies born in hospitals across the country during February, which is American Heart Month.

#LittleHatsBigHearts is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s campaign, in connection with The Children’s Heart Foundation, to collect knitted or crocheted red baby hats.

Yarn Specifics: Red, Cotton or Acrylic, Medium to Heavy Weight, Machine Washable and Dryable

Simple hat patterns would be great. While bows and buttons are outstanding, they can come off and can be dangerous for little ones so please do not include bows and buttons.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact ptownpta@gmail.com


From our Technology Coordinator, Ms. Lawrence:

I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a request for my classroom at DonorsChoose.org: Technology with Flexible Seating.

If you chip in to help my students, you’ll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks.

Thanks so much,
TaKwanda (takwanda.lawrence@dpsnc.net)

P.S. If you know anyone who may want to help my classroom, please pass this along!
