Minnesotan Tom Cornish volunteered for service in WWII, and he’s continued to give of his time ever since.

The 96-year-old says, “If someone needs something, I give it to them.”

Following this ideal, Cornish not only weaved headwear for donation to the Salvation Army but taught others the craft as well.

To date, Cornish has given away more than 400 winter hats.
