Jeanette and Sharon: Undoubtedly there are a number of worthy
organizations who are supporting the relief effort. One is
Project Linus, which has a history of providing quilts and
afghans to kids in crisis. NAYY, but it has a good reputation.

Click on 'chapters' and find the state you want. For the ***ia
victims, check with the Northern ***ia chapter.  There is a
NYC chapter but it only lists a phone number, so you might prefer
to click at the Westchester/Rockland chapter. Remember that
people travel to work from other states, so you could check
listing for neighbor states. I would assume the various chapters
near the attack sites are working together on this. HTH.

By the way folks, remember that the survivors run the gamut from
tiny babies, thru school kids, spouses and parents. So quilts of
all sizes and styles would be suitable, IMO. You might want to
check the quilts you made "for no reason" ... maybe just for a
challenge group or to try a new design.... and you could donate
one or two of those. I have a few that have never been used and
will sort out those today.

Two other groups are:

www.quiltsforkids.org

They are looking for red/white/blue quilts in crib size in any design.  
There are fabrics available in the requesite colors from the
organization if you need them too.

then there is

www.quiltforkids.org (no "s" on this one)

This organiation is making quilts for the children of the employees of
Cantor Fitzgerald (the company that lost 700 of its 1000 employees)  
They are accepting both crib and lap sizes and specific dimensions
desired are listed on that web site.
