Chemo Hat Project
The Central Vermont Chemo Cap & Shawl Project is an ongoing effort providing knitted and crocheted hats, shawls, scarves and legwarmers for cancer patients in local and regional cancer treatment centers. Four-ply acrylic yarn and monetary donations to purchase yarns are gratefully accepted.
In September 2014, we delivered 660 children's hats, 471 adult hats, 12 pair of slippers, 32 scarves, 86 shawls, 27 lap blankets, 62 pair of leg warmers and 1 pair of fingerless gloves to the J. Michael Carroll Center in Fairbanks, Alaska; the Linda Clemens Breast Cancer Foundation in Wethersfield, Connecticut; the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at DHMC; the National Life Cancer Center at CVH; the Boston Children's Hospital and to individuals in hospice in the Central Vermont Area.
