When beginning to plan for a service project the idea that “if we can help at least one person” is often the motivating force. The 100 Hats project started with the hope of providing some of the most destitute people, those without a home, some warmth during this cold time of year. As we began giving out those first hats, gloves and bags that we had we were welcomed with gracious smiles. We quickly realized that 100 hats was not enough!
Today we are extending our 100 hats project and recommitting by naming it “1000 Hats.”
The donations have already been great but we still need help. We need more donations of hats, gloves, socks, blankets and covers, duffle bags and backpacks. We have a drop off center at The Oasis Center, 4918 Homberg Dr, Knoxville, TN 37919. Large donations can be scheduled for pickup. If you are not able to drop items off you can donate money for items to be purchased below.
A little bit of light can go a long way!
