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.

The owners voted unanimously in May to give the compensation committee the authority to negotiate Goodell's new deal. Jones' maneuvers have escalated one of the worst fissures in decades in the normally clubby ownership group.

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.
