GREEN RIVER– A group of Truman Elementary School students received special gifts Thursday afternoon, November 16, when the Golden Hour Senior Center’s Sew Etc. group donated a bunch of handmade hats to them.
Sew Etc. Knit 144 Hats
Sew Etc. knit 144 hats for the students as part of a humanitarian project. Golden Hour Senior Center activities coordinator Barb Yates worked to figure out where the hats would go. She reached out to Truman teacher Bonnie Hanks and decided the hats would go to Truman.
The kids were ecstatic to receive the hats, trying them on as soon as they got them. They thanked the Sew Etc. ladies for their generosity.
