5,000 Newborns to Receive Red Hats in February

More than 5,000 babies born in Indiana in February will be decked out in reds hats courtesy of the American Heart Association’s “Little Hats, Big Hearts” program.

American Heart Association staff will deliver the tiny hats to 44 hospitals across the state beginning this week. The hats were lovingly hand-knitted by volunteers.

February is American Heart Month, and the week of Feb. 7-14 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. Heart disease remains the No. 1 cause of death in the United States and in Indiana, and congenital heart defects are the leading birth defect in newborns. The Little Hats, Big Hearts program raises awareness about both.

Volunteers interested in donating materials or knitting hats for next year, or hospitals that would like to participate in the program, should call the American Heart Association at (317) 732-4700.
