How do customers contribute to this program?
Now you really are using your gifts to give to others - How did you come up with the idea?
But all JoAnn Fabrics are not participating - is that correct?
How much does it cost to participate in this.

Additional support is now available for victims of September 11th's attack on America. President Bush has declared Virginia a disaster area. That means individuals and businesses are eligible for federal funding to help recover from the terrorist attack on the Pentagon. Bush issued a similar declaration for harder-hit New York City.
Assistance can include funds to help meet temporary housing needs ... grants for medical, funeral and other disaster-related expenses ... and low-interest loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration to cover losses not fully covered by insurance.
The declaration also makes unemployment benefits available.
