Number of Hats Donated to date:  37,245

Delaware Head Huggers is happy to announce that we are

cautiously resuming operations.  There are still a very limited

number of sites accepting caps due to the most recent surge of

Covid.   

 

  Cancer patients are some of our most vulnerable and while we want to give them comfort, we all want them to be safe.  So, there are some new rules in effect that must be followed.  

 

1. NO LIBRARY DROP OFFS. I can’t stress that enough.
 DO NOT put hats in the book drops….they will be thrown away. They will NOT be getting transit in as they used to and it is going to take a very long time before libraries are back to normal.
 
2. Please do NOT make hats if you or anyone you have been in contact with is sick. This should be the general rule anyway, but it is even more important now. 
 
3. Use ONLY machine wash/dry yarn for the foreseeable future. Patients will want to wash the hats as soon as they get them.  NO hand wash only items.  

 

4.  If you wash hats before sending, PLEASE use only unscented detergent and dryer sheets.  Cancer patients often have no tolerance for heavy scents.
 
5. 
Donating locally is fabulous! Don’t hesitate to donate to a center close to you if they can use them rather than sending things to me. Our numbers just do not matter this year at all! All items will need to be mailed to me directly at DEHH 202 Acorn Forest Dr., Felton, DE 19943.
 
6.  Email me at robin@delawareheadhuggers.org if you have any questions at all. I usually respond within 24 hours.
 

 

Please check back periodically or follow our Facebook page to stay up to date on any changes to this policy. 

 

Stay safe and well and continue to make the world a better place each day.

 

 

 

 

If donating by check, please make the check out to “Robin Agar”. 

I do not have a business account and can not deposit checks made to Delaware Head Huggers. 

Thank you!
