By Jennifer Emert - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The handiwork of Walmart employees is keeping some of southwest Georgia's newest residents warm.
More than a half dozen Walmart employees or their wives crocheted 29 blankets for the infants in the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.
Many of the babies are premature while others have severe complications. Walmart supports the Children's Miracle Network.
During a trip to the hospital, Walmart employee Brenda Owen noticed a similar blanket, and got the group crocheting.
"I would rather have something hand made than something store bought, there's more love in it," said Owen.
Depending on the size, it can take a day or several days to make a blanket.
Each blanket will be sent home with one of the babies.
