Local kids with Autism are helping their community one hat at a time.
Fifteen students from the Autism program at Madison Middle School have been busy over the last two months, knitting 140 hats.
Friday, the hats were delivered to Presbyterian Hospital for kids battling cancer, as well as newborn and premature babies.
The project does just as much for the kids making the hats as it does for those wearing them.
“They get a lot out of it. While they’re knitting they have to concentrate which makes all their other troubles or stresses go away,” Raimundi said.
Raimundi says as long as she has students and yarn the program will continue.
