Have you ever knitted, crocheted or sewn a hat? How about hand-making more than 500 hats and then giving them to charity?

That’s exactly what the Humana Charity Crafters recently did, hand-making more than 500 hats, breast cancer pillows, blankets and stuffed animals to benefit cancer patients at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center. The donation was in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and Make a Difference Day on Oct. 27.

The Humana Charity Crafters are a group of mostly senior women who meet weekly in Mesa, Ariz., to knit, crochet and sew items for charity. The group is open to anyone and all crafting materials are provided by Humana. Together, this group finds purpose and connecting while giving back to their local community.
