If you’ve ever crocheted, you know how satisfying it can be to make a beautiful gift, especially for someone in need.
This spring and summer in Ohio, a team of Humana associates decided to lend their crocheting skills – or to learn to crochet – and give back to the community by helping kids at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
Ten Humana Pharmacy associates from our Springdale and West Chester locations crocheted more than 80 hats over the months of May, June, and July – that’s enough for each baby in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. Some of the hats were made a bit larger, and given to older children undergoing chemotherapy for cancer treatment.
Humana Pharmacy Professional Practice Analyst Kelly Percer served as the project lead, with participation by Ohio Pharmacy colleagues Misty Eagles, Lou Eve, Courtney Kennedy, Emily Lawson, Tina Messer, April Oshell, Steph Raithel, Frankie Singleton, and Stephanie Whaley.
The group plans to continue to crochet for the community. Its next project will be to make potholders and dishcloths for those who recently lost their belongings in a Springdale apartment building fire.
