Czartoryski (andrea. czartoryski@dch- stx.org), the hospital's volunteer coordinator. The hospital, which performs around 30 surgeries per day (150 caps a week), wanted a 3 months' supply of caps to start. The sewing groups cranked out 1,300, using popular patterns like Frozen and other cartoons, as well as kid- friendly animals. Hospital officials say the patients and their parents are excited when they get to pick their caps. They get to wear them during surgery and take them home. And some of them like to believe they are a doctor or a nurse because of the caps. — Nicole Azzara CAP AND GOWN Caps Put Smiles on Kids' Faces • SEWTIME Volunteer extraordinaire Andrea Czartoryski (top left) and members of her sewing club made surgical caps for kids at Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas.
