Yarn Stash

One of our first donations…

Donated yarn to be used.

If you have yarn to donate – whether it be small part balls, or larger quantities, we can find a use for it…

We have a number of “Charity Yarn Stash” co-ordinators dotted around the regions, who will happily receive your yarn donation. If you don’t see anybody in your region, and you’d like to help out, please contact us (admin@craftyvolunteers.org.nz) – we are always getting donations offered from all corners of the country.

And if you would like to help use up donated yarn by producing something for charity, please contact one of our lovely “Charity Yarn Stash” co-ordinators listed below to make a time to meet and collect some yarn.

Note: Regions are based on District Health Board areas
