What We Do

Our mission reaches far beyond hats. Each day, we strive to change the lives of children battling cancer and support their families however we can. Learn more about everything we do below.

Ellie’s Helps

A large part of Ellie’s Hats mission is to help families who have a child battling cancer. Families often find themselves unable to make ends meet and need financial assistance for everyday living expenses. This year Ellie’s Hats is going to help some of these families.
The social workers at The Pediatric Specialists of Virginia Clinic will select five families each month to receive $1,000 from Ellie’s Hats. If your child is being treated at the PSV Clinic, and you are in need of financial assistance, please reach out to the social workers there.

Hero Bag Program

We created the “ Hero Bag” Program, at Inova Children’s Hospital, to provide families with essential resources to support them when they need it most. Hero Bags include items such as a sweatshirt blanket, games and other items a family might need. To this day, we have donated more than 200 bags to newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patients.

Grant A Wish

Our team prides itself on turning dreams into realities. We created the Ellie’s Hats Grant a Wish program to do exactly this. We’ll work directly with a child’s family or friends to help make their wish happen. We’ve helped connect someone with Kirk Cousins, arranged for a teenager to meet Steph Curry, built a basketball court in someone’s backyard, donated gifts and more. Contact us to learn more about our program.
