New Project: Pine Street Inn

We are now collecting hats and mittens for the Pine Street Inn of Boston, MA. They have specifically requested hats and mittens. They have not specified sizes or quantities. This will be an ongoing project. As we fill the box I specify for them I'll send it out and start a new one. On their website I read that they serve 1600 homeless individuals on a daily basis. Lets see what we can do to help them - I'll keep track of what we send to them. The first package will be sent late September or early October - depending on how soon it starts to get cold.

Mapping our Contributors - just for fun

I thought it would be fun to keep track of where our donations are coming from so I created this fun map. The states that are colored are the ones we have received donations from. Thank you to all who are part of this great project!

If your organization will need hats for the 2013/14 winter season please send an email to We are taking requests at this time and will do all we can to help.

If you are looking for a great project to be part of, please check the Needs/Wish List page and Current Projects page for more information or Contact Us.

Have a great week!
