Mission Statement

Project Linus is a volunteer 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. Anyone, any age, can help these children. It is within your power to make a difference!

Description

Project Linus welcomes blankets including quilts, tied comforters, fleece blankets, crocheted and knitted afghans, and receiving blankets in child friend colors and patterns. Blankets must be new (made of new materials), handmade and washable. You don't have to be an expert with a sewing machine, knitting needles or a crochet hook, or even know how to sew! Elaborate or simple, these blanket gifts are all beautiful to a child.

Project Linus accepts blankets in most any size. We donate to children ages infant through teen so many sizes are appropriate. The typical size is 45"x60", though infants can use blankets as small as 36"x36" (No fringe on baby blankets please!) and teens up to 54"x72".

The vast majority of the blankets made by our local chapter remain in our area. If special needs arise nationally, we may also support these (such as Hurricane Katrina and the San Diego Fires).
