Hats for the Homeless

my story is simple, i'm making hats for the homeless. i have 168 hats to date, (i started in january of this year), what i'm looking for are donations of yarn. i am disabled and on a fixed income and can't afford to buy it. i made scarves (50) a few years ago and donated those. with the yarn i had left over i started the hats, some of my friends gave me the rest of their yarn, but i need more! there are a lot of needy people out there and i would like to help. i prefer to remain anonymous, i never give my name when i donate anything, and i'd like to keep it that way. if there is anyone in the buffalo area that would like to donate yarn please email me at:
thank you.
