CONGRESSIONAL RECORD STATEMENT

HONORING

Southeast Florida Head Huggers

HON. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZof Florida

in the House of Representatives

 

March 7, 2016

 

Mr. Speaker,

 

I rise today to recognize the Southeast Chapter of Florida Head Huggers, also known as “Caps and Wraps,” as they celebrate their five-year anniversary.

This wonderful group of ladies meets every Thursday to knit and crochet caps, wraps and blankets, which are donated to adult and pediatric cancer patients who are undergoing treatment.

Since the group began in January 2011, Caps and Wraps has donated more than 20,000 “handmade hugs” to local hospitals and oncology offices to ensure that cancer patients are provided with warmth and comfort. 

As a cancer survivor, I offer my heartfelt appreciation to Chapter founder, Aline Zucker, for her kindness and generosity. 

I commend the Southeast Chapter of Florida Head Huggers for their commitment and compassion to the cancer community.

Thank you, I yield back the balance of my time.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz

MEMBER OF CONGRESS
