ConKerr Cancer has flyers in several local fabric shops here in Atlanta. Pillowcases are easy, and it's something kids can get involved with, too, if you want.

There are a variety of quilting charities, if you are into that. Linus, Project Binky, Quilts for Kids, and more I can't remember. You could also inquire of your local CASA or CPS office about making quilts for the kids that come into foster care.

A quicker small project is fleece hats, which I've done and donated to the local food pantry/clothing closet. If there's a homeless shelter nearby, you could donate there. With winter coming on, those would be welcome, I'm sure.

Thanks for posting this list. I'd like to teach DD to sew and doing it to help others is a great way to get started.
