February is nationally recognized as heart month. In Los Angeles, Huntington Hospital has collaborated with the American Heart Association (AHA) to provide every baby born at the hospital this month with a red onesie and hat as a symbol of heart health and encouragement for a healthy future.
These special hats were knitted and crocheted by volunteers from around the Los Angeles area through AHA’s program, Little Hats, Big Hearts (http://www.heart.org/), empowering moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same.
Huntington Hospital expressed gratiude for volunteers, such as students from the crochet club at St. Philip the Apostle School in Pasadena for hand-making some of the hats that were donated to the hospital.
Union Bank sponsored the Little Hats, Big Hearts program. For heart healthy tips, please visit:
