Our Hat Drive is OVER THE TOP!!

I am pleased to announce that we have exceeded our goal of 600 hats for the HatNotHate Drive! Sooooooo…. now we want to move the finish line! After discussing this with Louis Boria, we feel that we would love to be able to put hats on the heads of all the students at both Donegan (elementary school) and Broughal (Middle school). So please keep knitting and crocheting- we need more hats! We could really use more smaller sized ones. May we suggest the Pom Rox beaded kits with the added pompon. Perfect for the little ones.
And thank you all for all the hats we have collected. We are quite blessed to have such a great community.
