To All Our Warmth for Warriors Supporters


Thank you for making 2015 such a success!  Your generous contributions made it possible for us to distribute over 2,752 hats and 1395 mini-Christmas stockings, each filled with a small bar of soap or other toiletry, to our soldiers and 52 lap blankets mostly to our Veterans.  It is a little hard to comprehend that since the inception of Warmth for Warriors, we have distributed more than 41,100 handmade hats to our troops. 


Your support of the Warmth for Warriors mission is so important!  We hope you will join us again this year as we look forward to another great year and the opportunity to continue to show our soldiers both at home and abroad that we appreciate the sacrifices that they and their families are making. 


Please keep crocheting and knitting!  Again thank you.


41,179HATS DISTRIBUTED AS OF December 31, 2015!

Warm wool hats and smiling soldiers!

A Note from a Soldier:  "I just wanted to say thank you! What a great surprise to have received the Hats the other day. I came back from a mission dirty, hungry, & tired; you brought a great smile to all of our faces. I think most of my Soldiers slept with your hats on the same day/night. God Bless You All, thank you for what you do."  SFC K. F.

A Note to Our Knitters and Crocheters:  Please include a note with your email address and type of yarn (100% wool, acrylic, etc.) when you send us your hats.  Please note that for the safety of our sevice members, only 100% wool hats are shipped overseas to active duty personnel.

Thanks so much for generous donations of bar soap and toiletries from local individuals as they are much appreciated and we know our soldiers overseas love this special treat in their minature knit stockings at Christmas time!  A thank you also goes out to the Brown Sheep Company for their generous yarn donations and their continuing support. We are so grateful to have yarn companies right here in the U. S. that support us in our mission!

Warmth for Warriors, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation, was formed to show appreciation for the sacrifices made by our soldiers and their families.  To honor and support them, we are providing active duty and retired veterans with handmade, warm, wool hats and other comfort items.
