Our volunteers, known as "blanketeers," provide new, handmade, washable blankets to be given as gifts to seriously ill and traumatized children, ages 0-17. It is Project Linus' policy to accept blankets of all sizes, depending on local chapter needs. All blanket styles are welcome, including quilts, fleece blankets, crocheted or knitted afghans, and receiving blankets in child-friendly colors. Always remember that blankets must be homemade, washable, free of pins or beads, and come from environments free from contaminates due to allergy reasons.
To help you get started, be sure to check our "Blanket Guidelines" page. There you will find more information on the types of blankets we are looking for.
You can also find more information on our "Blanket Checklist" page. This goes into detail on what you need to do before turning in your blanket(s) to the chapter coordinator or a drop-off location.
To get started, please contact the Iredell County Coordinator to see what we are most in need of, as well as our own specifications and what we do and do not accept.
