Fleece Makes All the Difference

What were you doing when you were twelve? Most kids thought about their daily lives, school, friends, or simply how they fit into the world. Heather Monty found her place in the world by realizing how she could better the lives of those less fortunate than herself. Heather is the Founder and Director of Helping Across the Seas (H.A.T.S.) an organization that provides fleece hats for underprivileged or under-cared youth nationally and internationally. All the hats are sewn by middle school volunteers in Bedford NH with most of fleece material donated from a manufacturer. Along with providing fleece hats the organization has a focus on inspiring youth volunteers along with help facilitating their desire to better the world through acts of service.

Heather currently is a sophomore at Bates College in Lewiston, ME who helped her varsity rowing team take second place at NCAA national
championship. As a native New Englander she is excited to know through the partnership between H.A.T.S. and WFMY her hats will be donated locally. I am excited to see an organization founded and run by someone who at such a young age put the needs of people before herself. With organizations like H.A.T.S. teaming with WFMY our goal to warm the hearts and bodies throughout NH will be more easily achieved. This is a goal that fits well into both H.A.T.S. and WFMY missions.
