We support the following two Project Linus national events by providing blankets for each child to hold and cherish in memory of their lost loved one:
Good Grief Camp in Washington, DC, sponsored by Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS www.taps.org). The Good Grief Camp is a program for children who have lost a loved one who served in the Armed Forces. During Memorial Day weekend, these children share and learn coping skills through games, crafts, and other activities in a fun, supportive environment. To help them through this time of loss. Deadline for donations is April.
Snowball Express at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL, sponsored by the Gary Sinise Foundation. The program serves the surviving spouse/guardian and children of fallen military heroes and first responders. They are committed to year-round programming and support for families, honoring their fallen hero, encouraging them to make new memories, and providing opportunities to connect with others who know what they’ve been through. Deadline for donations is October.
