Sharell Middleton, Warrensburg, has knitted more than 200 tiny caps for infants at Children’s Mercy to help commemorate the American Heart Association’s Heart Month.

Middleton, a participant at the Care Connection Warrensburg Senior Center, crafted 210 tiny hats.

The Heart Association, in connection with the Children's Heart Foundation, will donate the knitted and crocheted red hats for babies born in February at participating hospitals.

"Little Hats, Big Hearts," honors babies, moms and heart-healthy lives.

The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness, provide resources and inspire moms to take their family’s heart health to heart while also raising awareness about congenital heart defects.

Middleton said she knitted the hats because she wanted a volunteer activity to keep her busy.
