Need Help Locating A Group or Charity?

We have a fabulous charity locator. We understand that many hospitals and other organizations do not want crochet items for donations. We are trying to locate organizations that accept crochet donations on an ongoing basis. In trying to participate with charities, we also recognize that not everyone wants to ship their finished goods across the country. There may be locations and charities within reach that may be very close to your own communities.

There is also a need to locate live crochet groups for people to attend. Finding these groups may be a tough task. We want to help you find groups that we know about. Our mapping program can map the world for locations. We are not limiting our listings to be only Canada or USA.

How To Get Listed on this Map

Charities

Charities must be accepting crochet based donations on an ongoing basis. Charities or organizations that are only looking for cash will not be listed on this map. Website address for researching about charity is required. Complete Mailing Address must be included. A short bio write up about the mission of the charity.

Live Crochet Groups

We will required the name of the group. A complete address where the group meets to be located on the map. Email address and/or contact information for the group. Short write up about the group. General Group Get Together Times, examples may be Tuesdays, or every other Monday. Or Weekly from September to April.

With any of the listings, it is the responsibility of the person donating items to do their own research about the charities. The crochet groups must be live in person attending events only. We are not responsible for groups that may have fees associated to membership. At this time there are no plans to list crafting shows or events that are only a few days each year.

If you would like to have a group in your area and/or are looking for a group in you area that isn’t on the map. We are listing only firm groups and charities on the map. Others in your area may be looking to. This is a great opportunity to connect with others.

Please Note

I am asked everyday by organizations and individuals to get free yarn. Though I am granted some yarn to make projects and videos, I am not given excessive quantities. Most of the yarn I am given has a plan or project attached to it where I am accountable for the yarn. For personal use projects, I am like everyone else where I pay for my own yarn.

I have no influence with any yarn company or organization to distribute free yarn.

Please look below the locator map for the submissions form.

If you would like to be considered for listing, send me details to Inquiry@thecrochetcrowd.com

  • Send me the name of your Charity or Group
  • Write up a Bio that will be pasted and copied to your place on the map. It’s up to you write the bio.
  • Provide us website address telling us about your group.
  • I will need an exact address to pin point you on the map.

      There is no sign up required. Just make the required hats, take a photo and donate them to whatever organization in your community that you choose.

    I can’t get the charity locator map to work. When I click on the map to the right of that first paragraph it only brings up a small picture of the same map shown. No way to enlarge it or enter a location. Help Please! Thanks!

          Oh, sorry Bonnie, I did misunderstand. The only thing on the map close to Louisville is this one:

          Lift! Prayer and Encouragement Ministry
          Gathering at Redeeming Vine Baptist Church 10:30am-3:00pm…come for all or part of the time, coffee and tea provided, bring a snack or sack lunch – and a project to work on! Everyone and ALL handicrafts welcome! You can work on any projects you like, but we do emphasize “making things to lift others up!” Every third Thursday so mark your calendars!

        Mikey, I do NOT like “The Crochet Crowd” new format!
        Also, I asked you before if you know of a program that will translate written instruction into a diagram and you did not answer!

          Sorry that you do not like the format that we have been using for over a year now.

          As far as Mikey answering your question, we here at The Crochet Crowd get asked hundreds of questions every day. We try very hard, but just cannot answer every single one of them. And the answer is no, we do not know of a program.

          ~ Jeanne

      Bonnie, if you are interested in adding a charity to the map, then please email the information needed from the bottom of the page and we will add the location. I know the map is working because we have several people looking at it each day. Hope this helps.

        I guess I misunderstood the link. I don’t want to add a charity.

          Hi Bonnie, I am also a KY resident and have been unable to locate any local charities. I know the need is great and will have to do additional research to locate one. Would you like contact information when I first d one? I’m located in southeastern KY.
