Welcome to Project Linus of Charles County, MD
First, 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, to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.
We're gearing up for Make a Blanket Day. This is a day when as many Blanketeers as possible get together for a marathon-like blanket-making fest! Any and all skill-levels welcomed! There are two events this year:
- On Friday, February 15 from 9:30am to 3:00pm at the Clark Senior Center in La Plata, MD. Must RSVP if you plan to attend lunch. See our newsletter (page 7) for more details.
- On Saturday, February 16 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Joann's Fabric in Brandywine, MD. They are planning to make no-sew, fleece blankets. See details here.
