Are you looking for places to donate your items? I've donated needles and yarn to a nearby Women's Prison via our local church. I could find out further info (where to send it, etc) if you are interested -- altho I would think there would be something more local to you. Below is a link to a recently newspaper article about their program.

Perryville Womens Prison

Yep, a "place" to donate needles only...I have donated yarn, but they don't take needles...Thought I check here on the forum first before I "donate" to Goodwill...

I would tend to donate to a retirement home. I know various local groups here buy yarn and take elderly people for outings to sit in places and to chat and knit. Needles are always very welcome. So, a retirement home or a local community welfare group that arranges craft activities for the elderly would be my picks.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

I'm starting a knitting club at school this fall (3rd to 5th grade students) and we'll definately be depending on donations from people for our knitting supplies. If your needles are plastic or bamboo, we can sure use them on our club; aluminum needles are not allowed in the school.

:hug:

Check with your local Ronald McDonald House, too. Ours actually does a weekly knitting group for the kids.

I don't know if this is what you have in mind but.. have you checked with Shandeh? She might could use some to *send along* with the charity blankets or shawls.:shrug:
