Lots of organizations collect sewing projects to answer seasonal and limited-time need, but there are also quite a charities and non-profits whose needs for supplies are ongoing and year-round. Whether you want to volunteer solo or with a small group or as part of a larger group effort, we’ve rounded up fantastic sewing service projects to warm your own heart while warming others! Some can be donated to a local agency and some are mailed away. Each of these sewing project ideas links lead to tutorials for the projects and information on where to send or donate the finished goods.
