GGC Professor Anne Williams Knits
Over 100 Hats for Homeless

December 18, 2019

For GCC business professor, Anne Williams, a stitch in time saves nine... well, more like 130. Dr. Williams carries on a family tradition during the holiday season of hand-knitting hats for the homeless in New Haven. It’s a much-needed effort. According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), in 2018 there were close to 4,000 homeless people living in the state. 

“I made about 130 [hats] this year, and I make them in different sizes, some small for children,” Williams said. “I give to St. Brendan on Fountain Street and the Community Soup Kitchen by Broadway, where they serve multiple meals multiple times a week, in many different locations.” Williams chose the locations because of the work of her cousins, Martha Sullivan and Margaret Foley, who knitted well into their 70s and 80s.
