Donate Scarves

We accept scarves that were worn during treatment as well as those that were not. Community scarves that weren’t worn during treatment will be paired with a story and start their journey as a Hope Scarf. To avoid costs sending scarves that may not work, please review our guidelines before sending.

Scarf Donations

Ideal size and styles for a Hope Scarf:

  • 30” or larger square; or if oblong, 17″ wide
  • Pre-sewn (like these)
  • Lightweight infinity scarves
  • Tube scarves (e.g. BUFF® brands)
  • Note: smaller decorative scarves may be repurposed into some of our projects, so go ahead and send.

Donations that are not useful to our program: Winter and knit scarves, hats, and accessories like clips, belts or gloves.

Once received, each scarf is professionally cleaned by Highland Cleaners in preparation for its journey. So, don’t worry about cleaning or ironing. Feel free to reach out with any question to
