Sometime this winter, more than 200 area school children in need will receive handmade hats and scarves, with the express purpose of keeping them warm during the harshness of the region's cold weather months.

The appreciative elementary school students will have no idea where the items came from, only that their teachers and/or administrators cared enough about their well being to ensure that they were indeed kept warm during the often brutal winter weather.

All the while, 91-year-old Claire Orthner will sit quietly in her southern New Jersey home and continue working her knitting needles just as fast as she possibly can. She has no desire for recognition, though her creations take hours of work and are certainly made with huge amounts of love and
