She then served 65 hours at Weirton United Way assisting with fundraising activities and mailings.  In March of 2000 Hattie started assisting with Food Service at Follansbee and Weirton Senior Center serving 319 hours.  She also started helping out at the local Senior Centers of  Brooke County and The Greater Weirton Senior Center serving 36,583 hours with crafts, medical transportation, fundraising, recreational activities, fun night, blood pressure, Bingo, flu shots, fundraising, newsletters, health nutrition, Christmas lap robe project, and advisory councils.  She has assisted with book sales at the Mary H.
