Afghans, beanies and scarves are distributed by us (if a location is close to our headquarters), or through various local community service organizations as well as those who contact us with their needs.

We have specific crochet patterns listed; however, please feel free to use any pattern for the afghan blocks, beanies and scarves. The only requirement we have is on the afghan blocks. Please make sure they measure 4″x6″ for babies and 7″x9″ for children/adults (this doesn’t include the single crochet around all sides with three (3) single crochets in each corner to finish).

All colors are welcome. We do request that you include some all red, white and blue 7″x9″ blocks for our veterans. Any afghan going to a veteran will include either: one red, one white and one blue afghan blocks to be sewn into the center of the afghan, or you can crochet a red/white/blue block to be integrated into the final afghan. Remember to single crochet around the entire block (with three (3) single crochets in each corner).
