No matter their age, everyone loves to receive a thoughtful gift. However, there’s something extra special when the gift received was made by hand.
Julia Pitts (Judy) delivered over 170 crocheted hats for the students at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind on Tuesday, October 3rd. With autumn approaching and temperatures cooling, Judy thought each student at SCSDB could use a warm, colorful hat.
“I’ve been crocheting for over 50 years,” said Pitts. “During the pandemic, I made lots of hats with all sorts of designs and characters kids love, and when I was thinking through places I could donate them to, the students at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind came to mind.”
Some hats are yellow with red pom poms, others are grey with pizza patches and there are even some hats crocheted into the shapes of pigs, foxes and bears. Every student at SCSDB was able to receive a hat that was special for them.
“The SCSDB Foundation is so grateful to Judy for thinking of our students this time of year," said Sam Hook, Executive Director of the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind Foundation. "Smiles have been delivered all across campus because of these handmade hats."
