Occupants from The Residences at Cheam Village (Independent Living Seniors home) have been busy knitting over 200 toques for the “CLICK for Babies: Period of Purple Crying Caps Campaign,” to help bring awareness and prevention to Shaken Baby Syndrome.

Every baby born in B.C., starting in November, will be given a purple toque at all hospitals and health units. The campaign goal was to have 4,000 purple toques donated, but to date, over 10,000 have been donated.
