Are there any charities I could support whose goal is to give people kitchen linens and textiles?

So I knit a lot and I want to Do Good. But there are only so many hats or baby blankets you can knit. However - I have a lot of yarn that's good for things like dishcloths or kitchen towels or potholders, and was thinking of donating a whole lot of THOSE somewhere; some program that helps to re-house people who are homeless or something. Kind of like if Habitat For Humanity had a little "housewarmng" basket they stuck in each kitchen with a couple towels and a potholder or something, to start the new house off.
Does anyone do that, or does this exist only in my head? (....And if it does, I may be coming into "Projects" in a few months to start it.) Thanks.
