A couple years ago, my friends and I donated squares at our local Michael's. We discovered later they simply threw all their donations in the trash.

In listening to an older podcast of Cast On, there was a listener on there who found out the squares were sitting in a back room...her and her friend ended up taking them and sewing them together themselves.

I would donate directly!

Thanks for the info.

I knit some squares to take to Michael's but never dropped them off. I look at the donation basket when I go by there, usually there are several squares in it. But I always wondered if they actually made it to WUA. Next time I'm in there I might just question them about it.
