Project Linus

National Make a Blanket Day is this Saturday, February 18th. Join other volunteers at Cornerstone United Methodist Church, 2123 Hamilton Road, Auburn between 9 am and 6 pm. Bring your materials and make a blanket alongside other volunteers or drop a blanket off. Childcare is not provided. However, children 8 years old and up are invited to participate. Volunteers, known as “blanketeers,” provide new, handmade, washable blankets to be given as gifts to seriously ill and traumatized children in Lee County and Columbus, Georgia, ages 0-18. It is Project Linus’ policy to accept blankets of all sizes, depending on local chapter needs. All blanket styles are welcome, including quilts, tied comforters, fleece blankets, crocheted or knitted afghans, and receiving blankets in child-friendly colors. Blankets must be homemade, washable, free of pins, and come from smoke-free environments due to allergy reasons. In addition to drop off location for blankets, we will also be accepting donations of fabric, yarn, and funds. Register at https://www.facebook.com/events/962873770495854/ .
