A group of senior citizens is giving the gift of warmth to area students this holiday season.

They're called the Knittin' Kittens and they're on a mission to create warm smiles.

The Knittin' Kittens are a group of more than 50 senior volunteers who crochet and knit year-round.

For the past seven years, they've been giving away their creations to students who need them most.
