Head Coverings for Cancer Victims

I mentioned in an earlier entry the desire for cancer patients who suffer hair loss to have something to cover their heads. By coincidence I've found an article in TheCabin.net, from Conway, Arkansas:
Faulkner County volunteers are planning another community "sew-in" to be held at the First Church of the Nazarene, Highway 65 North, in Greenbrier, May 15, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The workshop is open to all interested in sewing, cutting, pinning, ironing and packaging colorful kerchief-like head coverings. Known as "care caps," they are for free distribution to balding chemotherapy patients in Arkansas and across the nation. Over 8,200 women and children with cancer have been reached by this project.

Please read the entire article at the linked title.

I am sure that there are other such projects which some could help with, especially those who enjoy sewing. (See "Sewing for charity causes" for this and other sewing ideas from "freecraftsmembership".)
