Hats for the needy

A co-worker and I crochete. I was given large bags of yarn from a neighbor whos Aunt passed away. I made a few blankets for the family members. Then I was wondering what I was going to do with all the yarn. So I sarted making hats, I mentioned to my co-worker that I was making hats for the homeless so she decided to get involved. We already have over sixty hats made our goal is 100. Then if there is any yarn left over I plan on making scarfs also. My question is, do you know of a place where we can donate them for next year where they will be of good use ? Either homeless or needy. Please let me know. Again thanks for any help you can give us. We sure enjoy doing for othes. We are both Nurses Aides, and work in a Nursing home. I myself over the past year has made many blankets for the residents, it sure makes me feel good when I see those smiles upon their faces. I am a giver not a reciever. I enjoy doing for others. Bless you all- again thanks for any information you can give to me. Sincerly Charlene
