I live in Del Norte county. in California 90 miles from Eureka in a small town. We are a poor country with little resources for helping our veterans. I was told by the local commander here that there are 500 veterans here and 2/3 are homelss. We have no shelters for them in our small town, and old version of city fathers, don't want homeless sheltering here.
A lady and I heard of a need for these guys (even a lady out there homeless with 2 kids) to have warm caps for their heads as it gets pretty cold and rainy here most months. Between her and I we have turned in 23 caps and I have 3 done and hoping for 3 more by the week-end to turn in, before going back to work on the dolls for VERY sick kids.
Here is what the hats look like. The brim is wide and doubled to come over the ears or even eyes and nose when sleeping. We were told those getting the hats really like them. They are crocheted.
