Through the gift of handmade blankets, Project Linus
is able to provide a sense of security, warmth and comfort, to children who are seriously ill, traumatized,
or otherwise in need. We donate blankets to children from premature babies to eighteen years of age.

Whether you knit, crochet, quilt or love to make
no-sew fleece blankets, with Project Linus, you’ll find
a rewarding service opportunity for yourself or your group, while providing a child with comfort when they need it the most.

Our chapter has many meeting opportunities where we work on blankets, talk about blankets & share new blanket making ideas. When you join us, you’ll find yourself surrounded by warmth, good feelings, and some of the most amazing individuals you’ll ever get to meet! Project Linus “Blanketeers”!

Thank you so much for visiting our web site. We hope you’ll find everything you need here to get involved with our local chapter. If you’d like more information, or have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
