Castle Rock’s “Beanies, Friends & Food” to be featured on NBC4 News!

April 19, 2017

DIAMOND BAR, CA--NBC4 reporter Angie Crouch visited Castle Rock Elementary on Tuesday to get the scoop on the new Beanies, Friends & Food (BFF) group for the “Life Connected” series. 

Since January, ten BFF teachers and staff members have been meeting weekly to knit caps for cancer patients at the UC Irvine Infusion Center.

After catching the group in action, 2nd grade teachers Jill Fairbanks-Wilson and Rosemary Alvarez shared personal stories and why they formed the group to give these gifts from the heart.

Afterward, students took a close-up look at the news truck, and a few future reporters held the microphone!

"Life Connected" airs Sunday evenings at 11 p.m. on NBC4 news.
