We are suspending our blanket drive until further notice. If you have blankets to donate, please keep them until we resume the drive. The blanket making days, scheduled on March 25th & 26th have been cancelled.
We are collecting handmade blankets until march 31st and blanket materials until March 11th.
The FCBA YLD blanket drive will support Project Linus.
Project Linus’ mission: 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.”
Project Linus accepts NEW, HANDMADE, WASHABLE, blankets and afghans for giving to children ages 0-18 years. Project Linus blankets are not donated to adults. Project Linus donates blankets to children, infants through teens. Many sizes are appropriate depending on chapter need. For example, blankets could be as small as 36″ × 36.” The majority of Project Linus blankets are about 40″ × 60″, or what is called “crib size.” Blankets could be as large as twin size for teens. visit www.projectlinus.org to learn more.
You may donate handmade blankets at the FCBA office until March 31st.
