Hailey Howell’s Yarn Collection Project

Senior Hailey Howell is on a mission to help cancer patients.

Howell is taking time crocheting beanies for cancer patients who have lost their hair during treatment.

To do this, Howell asked the NP3 community for yarn donations. Her goal: to make as many hats as possible.

Howell said she did a similar project for her Girl Scout Silver Award. The Silver Award project is similar to an Eagle Scout project.

In Girl Scouts, Cadettes who are in 6th, 7th or 8th grade focus on an issue they care about, learn the facts, and take action to make a difference. It is the second highest award that a Girl Scout can earn in the program, the Gold Award is the highest. 

Howell said she made beanies again because she really enjoyed doing the project for her Silver Award. She said she not only creating the hats, she wanted to give back to the community during the holiday season.

Thanks to NP3 donations, Howell is able to crochet beanies to donate to Crochet for Cancer which will give them to cancer patients who need them.

Some hats Howell has made so far with the donated yarn.
