Finding Yarn Donations for Charity Projects

I am knitting 100 scarves for the children in the Salvation Army Shelter in Brampton Ontario. Last year I knitted 50 scarves. I am the Founder of Giving Hope to the Homeless Ministry. I have 2 ladies helping, me and I need to find out where I can get yarn donated to me.

I think you should try to get the attention of your local newspaper to do a profile on you and your cause. I am sure that donations would come your way.

Also contact local knitting and Stitch and bitch groups. They will help you out, no doubt.

Check with your local thrift shops, most of the time if it is not a full skein of wool they will not put it out for sale, it is possible that they would give you the odd bits

Put an ad on Freecycle and Craigslist. Also put the word out to friends. You could also go to yarn stores.
