The organization is looking for volunteers from Texas and other states to craft soft, red infant-sized hats to give to babies born at participating hospitals in February.

In collaboration with the Children's Heart Foundation and to celebrate American Heart Month, people are being asked to create infant-sized woolly hats.

Participating hospitals include Hilton Head Hospital and Coastal Carolina in Beaufort County, along with others around SC and the nation.

The program also helps raise awareness about congenital heart defects. You can also check out recommended yarn types and sample patterns.

Senior author Professor David Kao added: "By including coffee in the model, the prediction accuracy increased by four percent". The prior research was first introduced at American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions held in Anaheim, California.

Yarn donations also are accepted.

Hospital workers can get involved in the project too, they just need to contact their local office.

Donated hats should be dropped off or mailed by December 1, to the American Heart Association, ATTN: Little Hats, Big Hearts, 5 Brookside Drive, Wallingford, CT 06492.

Since the program started in 2014, more than 90,000 hats have been distributed to families in hospitals in 42 states, according to a the AHA website.
