Sounds like fun!!
Well a knitting club sounds wonderful. I would think you would have to decide WHERE you will have it. WHO you will invite. Thats a good place to start. Good luck with it!!

There are a ton of knitting charities. Here's a few lists.

Here's a few specific ideas;
Knit for Kids - sweaters
Snuggles Project - blankets for homeless animals
Mother Bear Project

you can also make items for a specific organization
I M making Chemo caps for a local hospital
and i knit with a group that makes gifts for meals on wheels workers and recipients
preemie caps for hospitals, and booties when you get more skilled
Blankets for shelters and hospitals
lap blankets, and lap robes, and shawls for people in nursing homes

just a few ideas
