Volunteers from Shiloh Road Church of Christ recently presented red knitted and crocheted hats to the ETMC Tyler Family Birthplace as part of the American Heart Association’s “Little Hats, Big Hearts” program.
The volunteers were very excited to fit their first hat at ETMC on Kristin Work’s baby girl, Haylen.
Over the past year, the ladies have made 345 hats to give out to East Texas hospitals. Every baby born in February will receive one. The hats serve as a reminder of heart defects in newborns. According to the Children’s Heart Foundation, one in 100 children is born with a congenital heart defect.
