The best way you can help the children is by making a blanket and donating it. We will take it to a facility where it will be given to a deserving child to keep. We've been distributing blankets for several years now; we've gotten a lot of feedback from the facilities that receive our donations and have gained a lot of experience in general.

Mary House Catholic Worker of Austin, Inc. is a small, nonprofit (501(c)(3) organization which serves homeless day laborers and people with retardation or mental illness. The winters are mild with intermittent freezing, sleet and snow periods lasting from one to 14 days. We distribute caps and gloves, and find that our guests benefit from wool or wool blend items the most. We give approximately 500 sets of winter items a year as well as sweaters, sox and blankets. ANY DONATION OF FINISHED ITEMS OR YARN AND KNITTING MATERIALS WOULD BE GIVEN DIRECTLY TO THOSE THEY BENEFIT. A SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE ALSO KNIT ITEMS FOR US TO GIVE AWAY.

WE primarily need baby blankets and baby booties. WE share basic baby items with approx. 130 low-income moms (on Medicaid) each month and we struggle to keep enough supplies on hand to meet the needs. WE do have a few women who do some knitting and crocheting for us, so they could use yarn as well. thanks for any help you can send.
