Welcome!  Through the gift of handmade blankets, Project Linus is able to provide a sense of security to children from premature babies to eighteen years of age.  Our blankets comfort children who are critically ill, traumatized or in need of a blanket “hug.”


Each month, our “blanketeers” gather to work on their own blanket projects at meetings held throughout the area. Of course, you can create blankets at home and drop them off at many convenient drop off sites.

Thank you so much for visiting our website. If you have any questions, please contact us. Just remember….When you donate a blanket, you become a blanketeer!
