We have a life long friend who is the Chief of Pediatrics in a major medical center. He came yesterday loaded with stuffed animals, fleece blankets, sunglasses, and soccer balls! These were some of the items that are donated to the hospital. He has had to rent a storage room...I will be donating these to a local shelter...
My point is...be sure your items are truly going to be used at the place you are donating to. Businesses, organizations, charity groups, and amazingly generous quilters want these things to be used not stored. Look into smaller communities and churches...they may use these items immediately. It is too costly to have our quilts being stored!
