Project Linus is a national organization of volunteers, known as “blanketeers,” who provide new, handmade, washable blankets to be given as gifts to seriously ill and traumatized children, 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. Always remember that blankets must be homemade, washable, free of pins, and come from smoke-free environments due to allergy reasons. St. Mary’s County has a local chapter which is located at the Loffler Senior Activity Center which normally meets the third Friday of each month at 10 a.m. This month Project Linus will meet on June 24 at 10 a.m. instead. Some blanketeers cannot attend the monthly meetings but still participate by dropping blankets off at Loffler Senior Activity Center during the month so that staff can give them to the coordinator when the group meets. For more information or questions call 301-737-5670, ext. 1658.
