Emily’s Hats For Hope

Posted: Updated:
Morristown, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Emily Kubin started the ‘Emily’s Hats For Hope’ initiative to help collect hats for New Jersey’s homeless and working poor. The Morristown, New Jersey native has already made almost 13,000 hats to help those in need.

“I started when I was a junior in high school, I’ve always been involved in volunteering and I learned how to make hats and I realized that I could do good with this. I mean, I never thought it would become something big, I thought it was gonna be something where I make hats and give them directly to my soup kitchen. A few weeks after I began, and my first donation was eight hats to my soup kitchen, my mom decided we should put it on social media, share it with our friends and see what became of it. Before I knew it we had thousands of likes on our Facebook page, people from all over the world had heard about us and were wanting to help us by sending yarn and donations and wanting to just make a difference,” Kubin explained.

Emily said that she gets a really good feeling knowing that she’s doing her part to help people throughout her community.

“Even though I can’t make the whole situation better, I can do a small deed that could really help,” Kubin said.

You too can help Emily’s cause. Visit her Facebook page to learn more!
