Healing Hats


Healing Hats  In November 2002, with volunteer help from the senior citizens group at Community Volunteer Service of the St. Croix Valley Area Happy Thomsen Sr. started a new project known as “Healing Hats.” He collects new hats from businesses with their logo on them and delivers the hats to the senior center for packaging in decorated bags of seven hats per bag. He then delivers the hats to Minnesota Oncology Hematology Foundation (they have seven locations), Children’s Hospital Minneapolis (and St. Paul), United Hospital, Regions Hospital, St. John’s Hospital and St. Joe’s Hospital. The hats are given to chemotherapy patients who are losing their hair. These chemotherapy patients now have a different hat for every day of the week. Stillwater Automotive Diagnostic Center pays for all costs associated with the Healing Hats program.
