Champagne Dreams on a Beer Budget.

I have started 2 Blanket Drives for 2 Shelters in my area.  One is a Homeless Shelter and Safe House for Women and Children in Daytona Beach Florida.  The other is The Agape Clubhouse; A Homeless Shelter in Deland, Florida.  I am currently asking for donations of 6" and 8" crocheted Granny Squares that I can assemble into Blankets.  Any yarn type, any colors, any patterns.  This is a great way to use up some scrap and do a Good Thing.  The blankets will be going to Men, Women and Children. 

PM Me for my address.  Thanks in advance for your help!

Would you be able to take knitted squares, as long as they
are the right size?
(sorry, I don't really know how to crochet....)

I am still asking for donated squares - especially now that we had several tornados come thru our area; my town - Deland, Florida was hit hard and I would like to donate some blankets to the families that lost everything.  If I could get donated squares and assemble into children's blankets, that would be a great comfort to the kids.


Please PM me if you're interested in helping.

Thanks!!

I can do some squares if you would like? Won't be anything too fancy since I just know basic crocheting?
