Kids participating in the Snack in a Backpack program will have a little “something extra” included in their December snacks.
Alice Hamp knitted 400 snuggly warm winter hats over the summer. When asked by Snack Director Angela Huffstetler how long it took her to make a single hat, Hamp replied, “oh, about two hours for each hat.” That’s 800 hours or 100 eight-hour days to complete the 400 hats!
Hamp is planning to come to the Dec. 14 bag packing and personally put a hat in each backpack.
“We appreciate this amazing contribution to our program. This could not have come at a better time,” said Huffstetler.
