THA – Headwear for the Homeless Campaign

Unisex Cashmere Wool Winter Cap - The Portolano Ski Cap from HartfordYork.comThe Headwear Association to distribute cold weather hats to men, women and children at local shelters and non-profit organizations nationwide

CHICAGO, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ – When temperatures dip below freezing, wearing a hat is one of the best ways to keep warm. Sadly, many of this nation’s homeless and underprivileged can not afford proper headwear to protect their head and ears during the long winter months.

Year after year, studies have shown that you lose as much as 80 percent of your body heat through your head. To help the less fortunate, The Headwear Association (THA), the oldest association in the hat trade and celebrating its centennial anniversary this year, will donate warm hats to shelters and non-profit organizations on Wednesday, December 10 in 20 cities across the country.

“Last year our members handed out more than 5,000 hats including knit, felt hats and other caps to disadvantaged people who needed them to stay warm during the winter,” said Bob Broner, president of The Headwear Association. “This campaign is so meaningful to our organization and we hope that our efforts make a small difference in the lives of those in need.”

For more information, please visit the THA website at or call Susan Weiss at 312-222-1337.
