Care Ware - Care Wear is a nationwide group of volunteers who provide handmade baby items to hospitals. Care Wear items are given to infants, children, and their parents.  The families usually keep the items as a memento, especially those for tiny preemies. Although the focus of Care Wear's efforts has been premature infants, it has been impossible to ignore the pleas for assistance for larger infants, children, and even geriatric patients.  There is the most demand for the larger preemie and full-term sizes of hats and booties. Most hospitals welcome small (30" x30") blankets and quilts. Volunteers provide all of the supplies and may use left over yarn and fabric. Seasonal and holiday colors are popular-as well as pastels and multicolor stripes.
