For over 20 years, Project Linus has been providing blankets to children who are between 0 and 18 years old. Through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers,” these blankets provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are in need, seriously ill, or traumatized.
You Can Help
Project Linus volunteers, known as “blanketeers,” provide new, handmade, washable blankets to be given as gifts. Although the process is more than a blanket or a gift, it is a rewarding experience. Project Linus provides a fullfilling and fun service opportunity for individuals and groups, all for the benefit of the children.
In addition to finished blankets, you can help in other ways. The local Project Linus chapter may need fabrics, batting, thread, and other items. If you are in the Prescott area and would like to donate an item or become a “blanketeer”, contact Julie at (928) 759-2760 for more information.
According to Project Linus, “All blanket styles are welcome, including quilts, tied comforters, fleece blankets, crocheted or knitted afghans, and receiving blankets in child-friendly colors. Always remember that blankets must be homemade, washable, free of pins, and come from smoke-free environments due to allergy reasons.”
Agape House Appreciates Project Linus
The gift of Project Linus has been such a blessing to the families we serve. A handmade blanket is delivered to each family during the time at Agape House. Talk about a “security blanket!” When life is rough, we often cling to our “security blankets” of the world. After a scary time or time of crisis, having a blanket to rest under is a beautiful thing. Peace is rare in our line of ministry, yet peace is a prayer we pray daily for our residents. We pray for rest and peace. This amazingly kind and priceless gift given through Project Linus is sensational!
Agape House wants to thank Project Linus and their “blanketeers” for coming along side our families, we truly appreciate your partnership.
