Make blankets at home or in a group to donate for children
Project Linus - Orange County NY
Individuals or groups needed to make blankets / quilts / afghans for children from age 0 to 18 years. Blankets need to be handmade and washable. Donations of materials also greatly appreciated such as cotton quilting material or acrylic yarn in child friendly colors. Contact Chapter Coordinator for further details.
Monthly meetings are held in Middletown, NY where blankets are dropped off to be donated and Project Linus labels are sewn onto the blankets before they are donated to the children.
In addition, we hold Blanket Making Days where the community is invited to join us to make blankets!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
