How Can You Help?

A-Season-of-Giving-2021-2.png With the holidays approaching, we are reminded that there are thousands of children across the country who are going through difficult circumstances: children in need of comfort. Project Linus provides handmade blankets as gifts to children who are ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. They may be suffering from illness, a family crisis, homelessness, abuse, or have lost everything in a natural disaster. We need your help to continue our mission. On Dec. 24, 2021, Project Linus will celebrate 26 years of providing comfort and security to over 8 million children. We invite you to go to Project Linus National and make a “Season of Giving” donation!  Please consider designating the Iredell County Chapter for your donation.

  • A donation of $15 will make a single layer fleece blanket.
  • A donation of $25 will purchase 2 packages of baby blanket batting.
  • A donation of $35 will purchase yarn for an afghan.
  • A donation of $40 will purchase fabric for a quilt top.
  • A donation of $50 will pay to send a box of blankets to children impacted by a natural disaster.
  • A donation of $100 provides up to 6 children with a blanket.

Launched in December 1995, Project Linus has grown to over 280 chapters nationwide and donated over 8.5 million blankets to children across the country.  The Iredell County Chapter of Project Linus (also serving Alexander, Wilkes, Yadkin, Davie and Davidson counties) was established in early 2017 to provide blankets to traumatized children in our communities and to provide a fun, rewarding service opportunity for people who enjoy making life a bit more cheerful for sick, homeless, or abused children.  Since launching in March 2017, we have delivered over 1300 blankets to children in need in our community.  Thank you Blanketeers!

Project Linus was named after the adorable security blanket-toting character from the Peanuts(c) comic strip.  Creator Charles Schultz was aware of our efforts and was delighted to have Linus inspire blanket makers to help comfort children in need.  "The best kind of sleep under heaven above, is under a blanket handmade with love."

You can help by becoming a blanketeer, donating materials to make blankets, hosting a Make A Blanket Day, or making a monetary tax-deductible donation.  Are you ready to "Get Involved" ?
