Community help needed for anti-bullying campaign

WORCESTER COUNTY, Md.- Worcester Goes Purple needs the community’s help to make hats. The non-profit is sponsoring the “Hat Not Hate” Project for all Middle School’s in Worcester County.

They need 600 blue hats to give out to students to help kick off Anti-Bullying Month in October. So, if you’re a community group or someone who can knit, crochet, or make a hat on a loom Worcester Goes Purple is asking for you to lend a helping hand.

“So, we just really are asking community members to get behind this to support kids, to help kids make good decisions, and to give them the support that they need,” Debbie Smullen, with Worcester Goes Purple, said. “Unfortunately with COVID, mental health is a real serious issue for society as a whole and especially for our kids and we really need to be there for them.”

Worcester Goes Purple is asking for the hats to be done by September 15.  They will provide materials if you need them and can arrange a pick up time. You can call Debbie Smullen at 410-870-5161  or email her at Wgpwarriors2021@gmail.com .

There is a drop- off location at Worcester Youth and Family in Berlin.
