If you are a crafter and want to use your skills to help out some kids in need, Project Night Night is a great organization that can use your help! Make a baby blanket for a homeless child this fall for their Baby Blanket Drive.
If you're not into crafting, you can also donate store bought blankets, books, and stuffed animals. This is a great national organization that helps kids who need it - and you can help too! DO IT!
