- LDSS to Make Special Delivery -
- students knit 1,000 hats for babies -
What began as a simple desire to help children has turned out 1,000 knitted hats for babies at Neonatal ICUs in the region and Leamington District Secondary School students will deliver them on Wednesday, May 28th to Leamington Memorial Hospital.
Volunteers from LeeLee Hats, a local charity group, taught the Grade 12 Family Studies class at LDSS how to knit the little caps and soon the whole school was involved. A United Way grant provided the funding for materials and students and staff contributed their labour.
The students will walk the short distance from LDSS to the hospital, caps in hand, for a meeting with the Director of Community Development at 10:00 a.m. The hats will be distributed among the hospitals in the region with Neonatal ICUs.
