Knitting for Babies With HIV/ AIDS

Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Through generous yarn donations from Saint Saviour High School students, parents and supporters, Sister Elizabeth Kelly and friends from Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) knit blankets for babies born with HIV/ AIDS. Nearly 400 blankets have been produced since November 2010 for this worthy cause. The blankets are distributed to babies at Lutheran, Brookdale, and Lincoln hospitals. 

IHM is a school with a convent in Kensington, Brooklyn. Open 95 years, they are closing this year and are combining with Holy Name. Sister Kelly and senior citizens of the parish knit the blankets, and sometimes hats and booties, for the babies. 
Saint Saviour students became involved in the program through Saint Saviour’s Campus Minister Sister Ann Lally, who lives at the IHM convent.
