Letter from President Biden
Letter from President Biden
This is an update about the ongoing #100Hats project.  In 2020, the #100Hats project donated around 100 hats to local charities. The project was also involved with the President's Volunteer Service Award Program at the University of Louisville. Every hour that was spent making and distributing the hats counted towards the volunteer service award.  The number of hours donated was over 250 hours!  President Biden honored the #100Hats Project and Amy Shah with a letter, certificate and pin. Wow!  LVL1 members, the #100Hats project is an award winning project! Thanks to the Awesome Foundation, Wonderful donors of time, money and yarn, and, of course,  LVL1 members for  making  all  this  possible.

This winter season Amy Shah is leading an initiative called the #100Hats Project to make and donate 100+ handmade winter clothing items to people in need in West and Downtown Louisville. She is partnering with LVL1 Hackerspace which has been awarded a grant to help realize this goal. This is the second winter for this project. It was very successful last year! LVL1 members made over 100 hats to give to people in need.  This year, we have made 26 handmade hats to date and donated them to Centerstone and the Home of the Innocents. We are accepting yarn or monetary donations at LVL1 Hackerspace 1205 East Washington St.
