Hats (and Hoodies) on to Helping Children with Cancer

Students who purchase a $2 wristband from Interact club members will be able to wear a hat or hoodie on Thursday, April 13th. The money raised will provide hats for children with cancer.

Heavenly Hats is a national organization that provides hats for children with cancer across the US and other countries, but the Interact club will be focusing more on the local community in hospitals like Driscoll Children’s Hospital.

“We have children here with cancer,” Interact club sponsor Charlene Dietrich said. “So that’s why I changed [the project] to benefit our community here.”

The club will purchase soft, crocheted hats, but will also provide fun hats with soft feels, such as Dr. Seuss hats, according to Dietrich.

“We’re going to provide a tub of hats, so kids can wear the hats and even keep them if they want to,” Dietrich said.

In just one day, the club raised $2000 across all campuses, and is still counting.

“The technology department sent money, and people have made donations,” Dietrich said. “I just want to thank all teachers for allowing students to wear hats, and I have to say kids in Calallen are good about stepping up.”
