2018 Cancer Challenge – Where to Donate

      5 Comments on 2018 Cancer Challenge – Where to Donate

So, you have decided to follow the Cancer Challenge and donate some hats, yay, I am so excited to have you join us! The next question you may have is… where?

Where do I donate my crochet items?

I recommend checking your local Cancer Centers. This can be as simple as doing a google search. Once you find a center make sure to call them and ask if they accept donations.

When you make that call, it may be a good idea to ask if they have a shortage of anything specific. Some examples may be X-large hats, small hats for teens, or hats for men, you just never know what their current needs might be.

I cannot find anywhere local, now what?

There may be some of you who live in a small community or who are unable to get out and deliver your donations. There are still some options for you. I take my donation in to one of our Cancer Centers here in Boise, Idaho, you are welcome to send your donation directly to me and I will be sure to include it with my donation.

There are also numerous organizations who are always looking for donations and have lots of other information on their sites. A few of them are (click image for site link):

    My sister’s oncologist has a basket in her office for people to donate hats. Any patient is free to take whatever hats they want. I made a few for my sister to drop off when she went in for visits, and after she died, we washed her hats that were still in good shape and took them to that office to add to the basket.
