Poverty in the North Country

I wasn't able to go to my placement last week because of weather, so I thought is photo was appropriate. Poverty is a core issue in the North Country, which is why I am knitting this baby hat for Potsdam Central Hospital. Many families don't have enough to provide their newborn with a hat to keep their head warm when leaving the hospital. This highlights the difficulties of raising children in poverty, and the obstacles that these families face.
