ATTALLA, AL (WAFF) - An Etowah County teen is crocheting hats for a good cause.

15-year-old Jordan Patterson, a sophomore at Etowah High School, is collecting yarn to crochet hats for cancer patients.

Patterson said she plans to take 150 hats to St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis to distribute to the young cancer patients.

Patterson said her grandmother died of cancer. She said her grandmother told her "you don't give to get. You give to other people to show you care."

You can donate yarn by visiting Patterson's Facebook page at "Jordan's Crochet."
