"Afghan Erin" Rosen-Watson started collecting afghans for children in foster care in Massachussets as a 4H project when she was 13 years old. That was in 2000, and since then she has expanded to helping children in critical care and shelters. She's looking for volunteers to knit/crochet squares or whole afghans, or to help assemble squares into afghans. She also accepts donations of yarn, old knitting/crochet needles, etc.

After discovering that many children enter foster care with few belongings, often carried in garbage bags, she began her "Essential Care Packet Project," in which she assembles basic necessities in a tote or duffle bag. For this project, she's looking for people to sew bags as well as donations of items to fill them. (She even gives the pattern for a tote bag.)

Really rather impressive for a sixteen-year-old.

I bet there are shelters and organizations in other cities that could use similar items, too.
