I had a nice talk with the lady in charge of donations at the hospital & she said they just had quints born yesterday & that they could always use these hats. I was so excited.

The hats you make are so cute!! I found a really easy newborn hat pattern last week on pinterest and I have made about 6 hats so far. I call the local hospital to see if I could donate a bunch if my mom and i make a box full. My mom told me to call and find out if our hospital will let you donate crochet hats.

Most hospitals will let you donate hats. Some are more picky as to colors, and what types of yarn you use. Some also request certain sizes(micro preemie, preemie, newborn etc)You just have to talk to someone in volunteer services. I live in the DFW area and there are several hospitals, I just called the one I've heard the most about & talked to the lady there.

Since I told her I don't drive in dallas(bc of traffic) we decided that I would make my goal before I dropped them off. I gave her my number in case they are needing hats before I make my 200.

Great idea! I'm going to call the local hospital here.there aren't many babies born there a year , probably not even 100 most are to low income or young mothers
