Fall Community Service Project - Pumpkin NICU hats

Over the past year I have donated crocheted newborn hats to our local Memphis, TN children's hospital, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.

Last week we received a letter from the NICU at Le Bonheur asking for more hats. If possible, they would like us to make pumpkin hats for each of their little ones for the fall season. They have a 60 bed level 4 NICU.

My daughter, Hannah, has taken this project on as her high school service project. I'm helping her, as I have time, to crochet as many newborn and smaller sized pumpkin hats as we can for Le Bonheur's NICU. This will become a year round project.

We would love for you to join us in our efforts to provide every NICU patient tLe Bonheur Children's Hospital a warm and cozy hat.

While you may use any pattern you like, the patterns we are using can be found at Little Monkeys Design. Use any pattern you'd like to, just remember, the hats need to be preemie size hats that will fit 1-5 pound babies.

Please email me if you are interested in joining our efforts. Feel free to pass this blog post on to others you know whom may be interested as well.

The end of November we will switch to winter holiday themed hats for the NICU. Stay tuned!
