Local Child Abuse Awareness Campaign a Success

Mid Coast Hospital and Midcoast Maine Community Action program would like to thank community members, volunteers, and hospital staff for their contribution of purple knitted and crocheted caps that were generously donated in support of the National PURPLE Crying Caps Campaign.

The almost 800 hats collected will be distributed to newborns at Mid Coast Hospital, serving to raise awareness around normal crying periods in infants and as a reminder to parents of the dangers of reacting in frustration by shaking or abusing an infant.
