Newborns at Hartford Hospital got a sweet surprise on Thursday: tiny kindergarten students dropping off care packages for them!
The kids were gathered up by Spencer Elementary School, and all the items donated help the newborns with everything they need in their beginning of life.
“People from the community heard about it and need blankets and hats. Each package is full of knitted blanket, a receiving blanket, pjs, hats, onesie,” said Gretchen Hertler McInvale, a kindergarten teacher.
For more than 30 years, McInvale and her students have gathered donations to bring the families on Valentine’s Day.
