KYP Asking for Hat and Mitten Donations

The Komen Young Professionals committee is teaming up to help out the Children’s Hunger Alliance (CHA) this holiday season for a special community project. For the past seven years, CHA has held an annual Holiday Party at Nationwide Arena for the children that participate in their programs.  Around 600 kids get to attend the party, skate, make an assortment of crafts, participate in numerous activities, as well as get a nutritious meal.   

At the end of the party, each child is given a goodie bag that has an assortment of items such as books, hats, gloves, stickers, pencils, etc.  CHA would like to provide a hat and gloves or mittens for each child.  In order to do that, they need 600 pairs of hats and gloves donated to this important cause.  

KYP has committed to providing 50 sets of hats and gloves or mittens, and we need your help to meet this goal!  Please drop off your donation of children’s hats and gloves to the Komen Columbus office to help us ensure we reach our goal.  As a reminder, the office location is moving.  You can drop off to the Grandview office until this Thursday, November 18.  If you plan to drop off next week, please take your donations to the new office: 929 Eastwind Drive, Suite 211, Westerville, Ohio 43081. 

You may also bring your donations to the Volunteer/Membership Sub-Committee meeting on Tuesday, November 30.  We need all donations by Wednesday, December 1.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact

Thanks in advance for your help and your commitment to this project.  The children that will benefit from your generosity will be truly grateful.
