Yes, there are many charities. I knit 6 x 9 inch rectangles for this charity. It's called HAP which stands for Handmade Afghan Project.
They collect these rectangles from knitters and sew 49 of them togethor to make 1 afghan.
This is how they work:
Every 2-3 months they get togethor, near and around Maryland, and have "Put-togethor events" where they lay them all out and then volunteers sew them togethor. After they are sewed they deliver them to Military Hospitals in Afghanistan, Germany and other US sites red cross etc...
