Knitting for a Cause

Members of Parkway Elementary School’s Knitting Club donated more than 80 hats to patients at Nassau University Medical Center.

Over the course of three months, fourth- and fifth-graders spent their lunch periods knitting small hats to benefit young patients in the pediatric intensive care unit, burn centers, and maternity and neonatal intensive care units.

Representatives from NUMC thanked the students for their thoughtful donations, discussed their involvement with patients and shared how members can volunteer at the hospital.  

In addition, students celebrated their year’s success with an ice cream party and raffles to win knitting baskets and supplies.
