Keep the spirit of the “season of giving” alive by donating homemade or storebought winter hats to those in need. Warm Up America ( Warmupamerica.org) always accepts knitted or crocheted hats, which they donate to the homeless and other people in need. But if you prefer to donate store-bought hats, reach out to your local United Way—many chapters host winter clothing drives. Even easier? Many charities, like Ellie’s Hats— a nonprofit organization that donates hats to sick children—post wish lists on Amazon, so you can order winter hats to donate right to the organization without having to visit a drop-off location.
