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.".
