Peggy, one of the Karing Knitters, delivered 78 hats to Kaiser Walnut Creek on February 23rd. As usual the nurses were thrilled to receive them. The KK group decided since the Antioch nurses appreciated the baby hats that were delivered to them last month so much, that we would give them more hats in the future. Of the 78 hats that we delivered today, Antioch received 25. Since March is St. Patrick's Day, Jan made some beautiful themed hats to include in this delivery. We know that all of the newborns will appreciate and enjoy the hats.

Peggy delivered 18 Valentine ♥ themed hats and 25 general hats to Kaiser Walnut Creek on February 1, 2017. The nurses were overly excited because they had run out of hats to give to the babies quite a while ago. They absolutely loved that there were some Valentine ♥ themed hats and told me that they would go to good use. Thank you Karing Knitters for your generous contributions. The nurses reiterated that the patients love the hats that we make.

Barbara's daughter just delivered a baby at Kaiser Antioch on 1/30/17. Peggy, Barbara's sister and proud "Grauntie", suggested to her that we donate some of the baby hats we've knitted/loomed and she agreed that it was a great idea. We donated 25 hats, 13 of which were Valentine themed and the rest were general hats. The nurses were thrilled because they receive very few hat donations. Antioch Kaiser delivers 125-135 babies monthly while Kaiser Walnut Creek delivers 350 babies monthly...big difference!
