The Hat Ladies eagerly tossed our hats into this Project (for the 7th year) sponsored by The Headwear Association and brought hats, donated by The Bollman Hat Company, www.bollmanhats.com to One80Place (formerly known as Crisis Ministries), www.one80place.org.

It is a win-win situation for everyone as seen by this note from Traci, the Donation and Supply Coordinator:

"Hello Beautiful Hat Ladies, Thank you for coming to One80 Place and giving hats to the guests. You went above and beyond just donating hats to people in need; you provided a self-confidence boost by helping the men and women choose a hat that not only keeps them warm in the winter but is also stylish. The event was a success, and we at One80 Place greatly value your continued support. We look forward to future events with the Hat Ladies."
