Hats off to the Homeless: End of Year Philanthropy Project to Sew Hats for the Homeless in Local Shelters!

The Creativity Shell is once again inviting Houston’s children ages 8-17 to their Kingwood studio at 1570 Kingwood Drive to help makes hats for the homeless.

The Creativity Shell is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization on a mission to use creative trades to educate and inspire the next generation of makers. The organization teaches sewing/textile arts and other trades classes to students in public libraries, schools and shelters that rescue children from homelessness and human trafficking. Their programs are designed to educate and inspire children by teaching them essential life and practical skills.

Last year, children from the Houston area made over 300 hats that were distributed to the homeless as well as refugees that were experiencing winter for the first time in Rochester, NY. This year, the Creativity Shell hopes to double the output with a goal of making 600 hats.

Workshops will be held at selected times from December 15 -23. Parents are asked to sign up their kids for a “Hats off to the Homeless” workshop online at https://app.mainstreetsites.com/dmn3570/classes.htm?sem=25045#sem. Registration is required so the staff can prepare enough supplies and have machines available for students to work on.

During a 1-hour workshop, students can make as many hats as possible.  The Creativity Shell is asking for a $10 donation/student to help pay for the cost of fabrics, supplies and to help pay for the cost of the Creativity Shell outreach program that will teach Free sewing classes in homeless and refugee shelters in 2019.
