Commonwealth Financial Network, our broker/dealer, created Chemo Caps for Kids to provide hand-knit hats for children undergoing cancer treatment. We’re honored to be lending our support—and our needles—to this special program.
It all started in 2009, when the Commonwealth home office staff came together to support a colleague whose son was receiving treatment for a brain tumor. Last year, Chemo Caps for Kids donated more than 250 hats to children’s hospitals. This year, the goal is 1,000 hats, and people in our office are busy knitting their own contributions.
The impact we can make on the little heads—and hearts—of these kids (not to mention our own) is immeasurable. If you’d like to help out, we’d love to have you! Please contact us for guidelines, recommendations on materials, and where to send finished hats.
Our September 1st – 2014 Deadline is rapidly approaching and we’ve received numerous hats so far. Looking forward to making another contribution to this worthwhile cause.
