Small town, big helpers.

Helping Hands Ladies of Cypress, a nonprofit organization, knit and crochet hats for the homeless, chemo patients, newborns, troops, and first responders. The group also makes scarves and baby blankets and quilts for those in hospice and the homeless.

"I think it is a good way for people to get involved with helping their neighbors," said Cathy Travland, vice president of projects for the Helping Hands Ladies of Cypress. "I think it makes people feel that they are making a difference and making thigs better in the place that they live. I think people want the community to improve and this is a way for them to give back.".

The group, which includes 25 active members, makes hats and quilts for organizations such as hospice centers, memory care centers, the Ronald McDonald House, Boys and Girls Country, the Shaken Baby Syndrome Campaign, and the American Heart Association.  The group received notoriety as a result of their "Harvey's Heroes" Initiative where hand knit "Hero Hats" were distributed to first res ponders in the aftermath of one of Houston's, the Nation's, most damaging hurricanes to date.
