KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- Kids helping kids. It's the idea behind a project that will help babies in local neonatal intensive care units have a better holiday season.
A Spark of Kindness teamed with the Grace Project for Blankets for Babies.
Children and their parents worked on blankets to be given to premature and sick babies.
The families worked on folding the fringes. It's an easy task, but one that could have a lasting impact on the children involved.
Amber White, the found of A Spark of Kindness says,
"With any Spark of Kindness project we get just the satisfaction of teaching other children how easy it is to give back. And how important it is to be involved in the community."
The blankets will be taken to the neonatal units at U.T. Medical Center and East Tennessee Children's Hospital.
Any leftovers will be given to hospitals in Chattanooga.
A total of 27 blankets were made.
