Wow, the response to this project has been absolutely amazing. I am so pleased and touched by the response.
We have received close to 60 hats in the last 30 days -- we will be making our first big distribution in the next week or so!! We've gotten lots of childrens hats but not as many adult items...we're looking for a good mix of both.
Also some news: We have expanded our efforts a bit -- A local hospice worker relayed that they see a real need for items for their patients as well; therefore, in addition to hats, we are also going to be accepting and donating lap robes. My husband knows how to make them (crafty little sweetheart), but I'm trying to find patterns to put up for these for everyone to be able to look over.
Big thanks to everyone who has taken the time to participate.
I will try to keep updating as the project progresses!
Thanks for all the love,
