ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Some Albuquerque Public School students are learning the importance of giving back.
Sixth and seventh graders in an autism program at Madison Middle School knitted more than 80 hats for premature and newborn babies, as well as kids with cancer, and donated them to Presbyterian Hospital.
Their teachers started the project as a way for the students to learn a new skill while contributing to the community.
The project helps the students as well. Knitting allows them to sit and concentrate on something for a while.
After they donated the hats, they also made some for themselves to wear.
