Finding Free Yarn Donations for Charity Projects

I just started a group that gives elderly women yarn to crochet hats and blankets for the homeless. I am trying to get scrap yarn via Facebook, but no luck so far.
Anyone know of a place to get scraps?

Look on Craigslist and even post that you need some yarn. I did a fundraiser in 2012 for a food bank and got tons. Also, for just a few cents on the dollar, thrift shops will be a good investment.

Along those lines, go to the manager and ask if they can donate some. If they can't, buying good quality mufflers and afghans are a great source too.

I once bought an afghan for 5.99 and it had about 25 skeins on it. You can imagine how much I saved!

I hope you do well. We do the same here in Salem OR with a wonderful group called the Sassy Stitchers.

I know yarn corporations will give their scrap yarns to people for shipping cost or free if you come pick it up. Hope it helps..

I am very interested. Myself and a few of our church group ladies are wanting to crochet hats scarves and mittens for homeless and could really use the yarn

I have a couple large boxes of assorted colors and weights yarn that I would be willing to donate to your cause. Please contact me. You pick it up and you can have it.
