There are nearly 300 smaller units (Chapters) which are all part of the national non-profit, Project Linus. Chapters are geographically placed in various states to facilitate getting together and delivering donated blankets to the children who need them.
In late 2009, the Montgomery County Chapter got its start with 10 people who showed up for its first meeting and from that time the chapter has grown to approximately 50 active members. With the combined efforts of our chapter members and many people from the community, our chapter has donated over 36,000 blankets to date. That's quite a few precious children who are hurting in some way and for whom a blanket can offer a sense of security and love.
The purpose of getting together on a monthly basis is to prepare all the donated blankets for delivery, which is a multi-step process! Blankets are checked to make sure they adhere to the guidelines and then a special Linus label is sewn on every blanket, guaranteeing it is ready to be given to a child.
We also have a great time together, laughing
and teasing as we work. A potluck lunch is held at the September, December, March and May meetings, which is a great time to simply visit.
If you want a fulfilling and meaningful way to help children who are ill or traumatized, you are invited to come join us. Whether you quilt, knit, crochet, work with fleece or none of these, we have a place for you.
