Launched in December 1995, Project Linus has grown to over 400 chapters nationwide and donated over 7,375,351 blankets to children across the country.  The Iredell County Chapter of Project Linus was established in early 2017 to provide blankets to traumatized children in Iredell County and to provide a fun, rewarding service opportunity for people who enjoy making life a bit more cheerful for children in need in our community.

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.

We are in need of blankets as well as agencies who serve children to accept our blankets.  If you would like to be a blanketeer or host a Make A Blanket event for your group, or know of a local agency who could benefit from our blankets, please contact us.

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" ?
