Mission Statement

Project Linus is a non-profit organization with 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.

Description

Named after the blanket-toting Peanuts character, Project Linus ( www.projectlinus.org) is a national all-volunteer organization that provides comfort and security to seriously ill and traumatized children through handmade blankets. Since its inception in 1995, Project Linus' 384 chapters have distributed more than 4 million handmade blankets to children in need around the country.

The Solano County chapter of Project Linus opened in November 2008 and is currently donating blankets to many organizations throughout Solano County, including Child Welfare Services, Sutter Solano Emergency Room, Fisher House at Travis AFB, David Grant Medical Center Neo-Natal and Pediatric units,Birthing centers of Kaiser Hospitals in Vacaville and Vallejo, Nurse Family Partnership and Kinship Care.
