    Send money to the Salvation Army or Red Cross instead. People whose homes have blown away don't have a place to keep quilts or pillowcases. But they are going to need to be fed.

    Every single news show is talking about it - don't send "stuff" - send money to Red Cross or Salvation Army or another organization of your choice that is helping out.

    Maybe someday when things are rebuilt and have to be re-furnished there will be a place for bedding and quilts.

    I always do money to the Red Cross or Salvation Army. They had to find warehouses to put all the stuff people sent to Sandy Hook after the tragedy there.

    Hi missgigglewings, I live in Moore and if you want to send me the quilts I will find someone who can used them, I know there is someone out there that would love a quilt to snuggle in. I will also check with the churches to see if there is a need for them, but however it's hard to get around in the area right now and fema is asking us to stay away until all people who are missing have been accounted for...

    I agree, if you don't have a place to live, what would you need quilts and pillowcases for???
