Quilter's Public Service Annoucement - Help for tornado victims

One of the participants in the Kate Spain Charm Swap happened to mention that she lives in one of the areas recently ravaged by tornadoes. Her local quilt shop, Peddler's Way Quilt Co, is taking donations to be distributed to the victims.
They are accepting completed quilts (with labels please), pillowcases, new pillows, afghans, scarves, hats and gloves. All sizes are appreciated. This is a picture from a week ago that they posted in their Facebook page of the donations they have received so far.
So if you have some quilts or any of the other requested items that you are able to donate, I know they'd be happy to receive them. Unfortunately I don't have any quilts ready to go but I'm definitely going to whip up some pillowcases and pile in some hats and gloves in the box to send their way.

Their address is:
Peddler's Way Quilt Co
127 Peddler's Way
Washington, IL 61571

Please spread the word and help them to help all the people who recently lost everything to the horrible storms.

I have sent some on to the site Bonnie Hunter listed. We also have a pillowcase collection going with our Guild, but that is for a local cause. Thank you for listing this.
