Beanies for the homeless

Save to Favorites


Beanie Hats

Operation Big Serve is a need of thin yarn beanies for Spring/Summer and heavier yarn beanies for the Fall/Winter mainly in adult sizes, but we do serve some children as there are families that are homeless. All ages can make these beanies on a loom or by hand crocheting or knitting. This need is ongoing and works well for all seasons in Arizona. We do outreaches in Mesa and the greater Phoenix area! Beanies can be dropped off at Blessings Boutique & Thrift Store, 911 E. Main St., Mesa, AZ 85203.
