We donate to all sorts of people in need, so send along all of your knit or crocheted items and they will go to someone who needs them. But if you prefer to make hats or other items for chemo patients, or anyone else in a hospital, please follow these guidelines:
For hospital patients:
- items must be very clean
- items must be individually bagged
- please do not use wool
- items must be from a smoke-free, pet-free home
Here's the good news: I will wash (carefully, I promise!) your items for you if you like. If I receive items that I think would be good for hospital patients and they haven't been washed and bagged, I always wash them and individually bag them. Even if you have smoke and/or pet dander in your house, still send your things and I will take care of them.
