Ridgefield Crochet Club prepares to make hats for children’s hospital

Published:

Ridgefield — The South Ridge Elementary Crochet Club’s next project will be crocheting hats for children at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, something Emily Crawford, the school’s librarian, knows about. Her own daughter had cancer and received hats at the hospital when she was going through chemotherapy, so Crawford thought it would be a fun way to give back. Her daughter has since recovered. One of the members of the club, third-grader Liberty Glessing, joined the club because her friend, Marta Krawczyk, kept talking it up. Liberty is also preparing for surgery for a leg-length discrepancy, and will be a wheelchair for several months during her recovery. She wanted to learn so she’d have something to do. Anyone interested in helping with the Crochet Club project, donations of yarn or hats are welcome and can be dropped off at South Ridge Elementary School, 502 N.W. 199th Street.
