CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Kindergartners at St. James Episcopal School found a creative way to give back to kids their own age.

They made warm blankets for oncology patients at Driscoll Children's Hospital.

This is a tradition at St. James as they’ve done this for 15 years.

The kindergartners kids make the blankets in class.

Parents cut the edges, and the little ones tie knots at the end making the blankets.

And today they presented them to two of their own who were diagnosed with cancer before the age of 3.

“It’s cool when we got to cut the blankets and made them for these kids,” one child said.

“And draw the lines to cut them,” another student added.

The blankets were delivered to the oncology patients at Driscoll today.
