Guthrie Receives Donation of Handmade Items

March 14, 2019

Guthrie's Labor, Delivery, Recovery, Postpartum (LDRP) department recently received a large donation of baby hats and car seat blankets, handmade by Kaitlyn DiNardo, a sophomore at Corning Painted Post High School. 

Kaitlyn decided to learn how to crochet and knit as part of a project for school. She was able to learn with the help of YouTube videos, Google and her grandmother Sharon Peris, a retired Guthrie radiology technician at Corning Centerway. Kaitlyn and her grandmother made numerous hats and blankets that were presented to LDRP for families in need this winter.
