Acadiana women send beanies to St. Jude Children's Hospital

Posted: Updated:
Kaplan, La. -

A group of Acadiana women has been working around the clock to provide beanies for patients at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.

These women meet in Kaplan to knit, crochet, teach each other and share supplies as they figure out how to gain new volunteers and acquire more yarn donations. 

Volunteer Tissa Matthews tells us the group's goal was to make 500 beanies, but as of early November, they had already turned out 2,500 beanies.

Today, the group met in Kaplan for their final turn-in before the beanies are sent off to Tennessee.
