Current Needs

made with love, brochure and afghan images
Warm Up America! accepts 7"x 9" knit/crochet sections, finished afghans and accessories year-round. However, we often have specific needs that require help from our incredible volunteers. Visit this page for updated information on the best way you can help us spread warmth around the country.

Parkland Hospital

We are continuing our partnership with Parkland Hospital and need help collecting baby blanket donations (40" x 40").

Parkland also welcomes knitted or crocheted blankets, scarves and hats in all sizes for adult patients as well.

Project Homeless Connect

Project Homeless Connect (PHC) in San Francisco is a one day event put on every 3-6 months where a person experiencing homelessness can find services that would otherwise take months to secure. These services include dental care, eyeglasses, HIV testing, housing information, food, hygiene products, medical care, mental health services, SSI benefits, legal advice, California identification cards, voice mail accounts, employment counseling/job placement, wheelchair repair, addiction services, and more.

We are currently collecting lap and full size afghans for the Project Homeless Connect event in December 2016. PHC provides services to 1300-1500 people during this event so our goal is to collect enough afghans for all of them!
