Help Us Grow

Make a Donation

Support our Programs

Contribute to Project Knitwell and help us serve more parents of sick kids, cancer patients, nurses and other caregivers, those affected by homelessness, at-risk teens, and others for whom knitting can provide a wellness tool. We’ll use the funds to reach more individuals — in local hospitals, community organizations, schools, and other sites — to purchase supplies, and to help us build a sustainable organization and grow. Gifts of any amount are welcome, and we are grateful for your contributions.

In-kind donations: Please contact us first if you have yarn or needles you would like to donate and we will let you know if we are able to accept them at this time. Please do not drop off yarn or needles at our mailbox in Arlington, VA without first speaking to someone about your donation. Thank you. 

Learn more about our needs

Although we love a good stash as much as the next knitter, we must be selective in accepting yarn and needle donations to ensure that we can use your donated supplies with our program participants. We will usually accept:

  1. Yarn that is relatively new and banded.
  2. Yarn that has been stored in a ventilated area and is smoke-free and odor-free.
  3. Yarn that is of worsted, bulky, or super bulky weight.

If your yarn donation meets these conditions, get in touch! Please contact us first to see if we can accept your donation prior to dropping off yarn or needles at our mailbox in Arlington, VA. Or you can sign up for our newsletter to get the latest information on our donation needs.
