Female Offenders at the Bledsoe County Correctional Complex (BCCX) recently completed a project in support of an American Heart Association (AHA) program. The offenders donated over 200 hand-crocheted hats for newborn babies for the AHA's Little Hats, Big Hearts initiative. The project began around mid-November under the guidance of BCCX Recreation Specialist Staci Willey. Approximately 10 female offenders participated in the project, spending a few hours each day crocheting the hats using donated yarn. In all, 243 red hats were made, all of which were delivered to the Knoxville, Tennessee AHA Office. The hats will be sent to participating hospitals all over East Tennessee.
