There were a lot of happy, smiling faces out there in our community recently, as the beautiful and colorful Hats For A Purpose were distributed to local schools to help warm the hearts and heads of kids who needed them.
This year’s effort by so many creative and skilled crafters almost doubled the number of hats from earlier years. School administrators wanted everyone to know that some children never get anything new so receiving a handmade ‘just for them’ hat was a real experience and one they will never forget. One school nurse noted “the hats and scarves were beautiful.”
The picture to the right shows just a few of the hats that made kids smile this year. What club project has made you smile?
