For 2011, one of my goals is to be more active in charitable productivity and charitable giving. To that end, I'm focusing at the moment on the possibility of knitting caps/afghans for preemies and chemo patients and collecting the same from others. (See * below.)
The trouble I run into is I find very little information about where/how to donate, and with my schedule don't have as much opportunity to identify the outlet for my labors as I would like, such things being more easily done in person during business hours.
Since "in person" isn't an option, and since telephone is impractical for multiple reasons, I am, I think, left with email or letter to various hospitals, etc. to see if they want what I can provide, with the follow-up being to publicize that I am collecting for a given cause. *The publicity is because I choose to believe others are as stymied as I am on the "where to give" issue, and I want to resolve that for as many as possible.
So: Who would you contact at each hospital to see if they want/can accept such things?
Does every hospital have a charitable giving coordinator? (Does any hospital?)
Thoughts? Ideas? Interest helping?
