Hats on for Healthcare

EVENT INFORMATION

Hats On For Healthcare participation is easy! All you have to do is wear a hat and make a donation!

Instead of our traditional one-day event, Hats On For Healthcare 2021 will be a month long campaign. This will allow organizations and employers the flexibility to engage their participants in a manner that is best suited for them during the pandemic.

With COVID-19 restrictions, many workplaces and schools are unable to host Hats On For Healthcare traditionally by collecting donations in person. Our new Online Portal will allow participants to register, participate, and donate safely online. If your workplace or school is able to safely conduct cash collection, you may continue to do so and submit your donation through our Online Platform as well.

Instructions on how to make donations through our Online Platform can be found below under Registration.
