Shirley A. Holly, NJSFWC President
HatNotHate, the organization that promotes anti-bullying programs in schools and communities, is no longer collecting knitted and crocheted blue hats. They have, in the past, asked for blue hats to bring awareness to their programs. However, they are currently no longer taking them. If you visit their website, HatNotHate.org, they suggest you check their resource page for activity ideas to share with your local schools and community groups.
For clubs that have already made hats, you can donate them to a local shelter or group that serves children, or you can contact the Advocates for Children Chairman and she will get them to the Center For Family Services, an organization that helps underserved families and children. Contact Nancy Levy at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call or text her. Arrangements can be made to have your District Vice President or another Board member bring them to Headquarters for her.
