Every December, The Headwear Association coordinates the annual Headwear for the Homeless event in cities across the U.S.
To help disadvantaged people keep warm during the cold winter months, The Headwear Association donated thousands of hats to homeless shelters and nonprofit organizations across the U.S. during their December Headwear for the Homeless drive. It is a very gratifying experience for all involved.
Our most recent drive, Dorfman Pacific sent teams to six locations and passed out over 3,000 hats. “Headwear for the Homeless will always be a part of Dorfman Pacific’s outreach to the community,” said Todd Gardner. “Our employees are moved every year by the stories we hear.”
Bollman Hat Company provided hats to the Hat Ladies who held a Headwear for the Homeless hat giveaway in Charleston, SC. Bollman also traveled to shelters in Pennsylvania to donate hats and cold weather accessories to people in need and to wish them a Merry Christmas. Officials from Bollman Hat Company helped hand out more than 400 hats to people at the Opportunity House and Mary’s Shelter.
Kniasia Hundly, who was placing oversized hats on the head of her adorable 3-month-old son at Mary’s Shelter in Lancaster, said she was impressed by Bollman’s efforts.
“The hats are wonderful. They’re beautiful,” she said. “They’re really stylish. “I think it’s really nice they do this. You don’t have a lot of places where people will come out and give you things.”
Hundly also said she was touched that the company takes the time to donate so much each year.”It shows a lot of love,” she said.
Bollman Hat Company CEO, Don Rongione, has been an avid supporter of Headwear for the Homeless since its inception and promised, “For as long as I’m CEO we will continue to participate in this event because it’s just a great thing to do and a wonderful way we can impact our community.
