In 5 years along with 8965 toys and gifts donated to PCH we have been able to donated over 500 little caps for the premature babies in NICU and over 150 Chemo hats for the kids battling cancer. A lot of these caps and hats come from prisoners in the Arizona Prison system. As these guys have a lot of time on their hands and as they wish to give back to society for the crimes they have committed, we furnish them with soft, donated yarn and they proceed to make the caps and hats. I have to give a loud shout out to several ladies in the Anthem community and especially Lorraine Schmidt, who continue to amaze me with their charitable donation of hats for these vulnerable little babies. THANK YOU ladies so very much.

You can learn a lot through a Google search of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the many medical issues of why very young children are placed there.
So Ladies & Men, find your favorite pattern, get down to your favorite yarn shop and create hats and caps works of art through knitting and crocheting (learn how here – www.redheart.com)… and help keep those little heads warm… just another way in helping to provided… Smiles 4 Sick Children.
