Local Charities

I started a list of local charities that collect and distribute hand made items. I think I may have worded it wrong on the posts I made asking for help. Or maybe I just didn't comprehend the scope of what I was trying to do. I have been receiving lists of hopitals, nursing homes etc.. Thats not exactly what I was looking for, I just wasn't clear on what I was asking for. I would go nuts listing everything just in the St. Louis area, let alone every city in every state. What I am looking for is groups that make or collect these items to distribute to the hospitals, nursing homes etc. Project Linus or Head Huggers would be more along the line of what I was trying to do. Of course they list all their chapters on their national website, so I've just provided a link for that.

So now that I have (hopefully) made that more clear I would like to ask for your help. If you know any organization or group in your area that you would like to have listed just leave a comment. You can see the list I have so far by clicking the link on the right for the state listings.

I am BusyHands4Charity here in Lincoln,Ne and I work with local charities making caps, ear warmers, shawls and small blankets for the kids. I also make Diaper Bags for the low-income Moms who need them and fill the bags with first items. I am always in need of 4-ply worsted weight yarn to make these items to give away. If you want my address just email me.
Thanks for reading this.
