How Can You Help?

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a question about the Iredell County Chapter of Project Linus or want to know how you can help? Some common questions along with answers are listed below.  If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Chapter Coordinator.

How can I help?
Make a blanket and donate it to our chapter. We will take your blanket to a facility where it will be given to a deserving child.  You don't have to be an expert to create a blanket that is beautiful to a child!
How can I make a monetary donation?
We have several ways you can donate, with the most popular being that of paying online via credit card. Please visit our Donations page for more information.
What type of blankets does Project Linus accept?
We accept NEW, HANDMADE, WASHABLE, blankets and afghans for giving to children ages 0-17 years. Project Linus blankets are not donated to adults. We accept all sizes and styles.  Visit our Blanket Guidelines page for more details.
What type of blankets does Project Linus NOT accept?
We will not accept blankets that are not of excellent quality. In addition they must be free from contaminants. Special care should be taken to insure all blankets are free of smoky smells or any chemicals which could cause problems for a child. Hospitals will not accept these blankets, and they will most likely be discarded.  Always check blankets carefully for pins, and remove any embellishments such as buttons that could be swallowed. Thank you for helping to make sure that Project Linus blankets are safe and healthy, and will bring only comfort and security to a child in need!
What about sizes?
Project Linus donates blankets to children, infants through teens. Many sizes are appropriate. 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 our Guidelines page for more details.
Where can I find a pattern for making a Project Linus blanket?
We have some patterns listed on the Patterns page, and there are many more on the Project Linus National website.
Should I wash my blanket before donating it?
We will wash all blankets before donating them to ensure that they are fresh and meet our quality control standards. We would prefer to receive blankets from a smoke free, pet free environment but when there are pets or a smoker in the home, please let the Chapter Coordinator know so she can confirm the smoky odor is gone.
I know of a child who really needs a blanket. What can I do?
Most children receive a Project Linus blanket through a local hospital, shelter, or other agency. If you know a child in crisis who will not likely get a Project Linus blanket from one of these facilities, please contact the Iredell County Chapter Coordinator.
