Welcome to our new online home

Our mission is to provide those less fortunate with hats collected at hockey game hat tricks or by individual donation. We wash, sanitize, and restore the hats to near new condition. These recycled hats, which help preserve our environment, are then distributed to deserving organizations and mission efforts.

Hat of the Month

This "My First Penguin's Cap" was thrown at Sydney Crosby's 12/29/2010 Hat Trick that was subsequently recalled when it was determined that the third goal was tipped into the net by Matt Cooke's stick. Although the Hat Trick was recalled, approximately 125 hats were tossed onto the ice in celebration!

Operation Troop Appreciation
"Thank you to Kristen Holloway Querriera, for providing us the means to give hats to soldiers being deployed from the Pittsburgh area. We hope the hats affirm your mission, "To build and sustain the morale of deployed troops, enabling them to complete their missions with the assurance that the American public supports and appreciates their selfless service and daily sacrifices."
- Mike Behme

Boy Scout Troop 830, Clinton Pennsylvania
