91-year-old hospital patient knits hats for homeless
- Morrie Boogart has been knitting hats for the homeless for 15 years
- He is bedridden and says it gives him purpose
Boogart knits hats — 8,000 of them so far — and donates them to the homeless. He’s been doing it for 15 years, and even at his advanced age he still manages a hat every two days.
“This has been the best thing that’s happened to me because I just stay in my room,” he says.
Boogart’s assisted living home, Cambridge Manors in Grandville, Michigan, is accepting donations of yarn and hand-made hats so Boogart can continue his good work.
