Project Linus is a national, non-profit organization that provides blankets of all shapes and sizes to ill or traumatized children from new born to 18 years of age.
It has a two-fold mission:
First, it is our mission to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “Blanketeers”.
Second, it is our mission to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children: www.projectlinus.org.
