“Project Linus is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization which was started in December 1995 by Karen Loucks in Parker, Colorado. Karen read an article in Parade magazine about a little girl who was comforted by a blanket as she underwent chemotherapy treatments. Having recently learned to crochet, Karen began supplying blankets to the Rocky Mountain Children’s Cancer Center. As she told her friends about her self-appointed task, they offered to help. Over time and assorted growing pains, Project Linus grew into a national organization with nearly 400 chapters providing blankets to children in need all across the USA.”
A Pond Springs group meets each month to provide blankets for this important ministry. You don’t have to be a professional tailor to be involved in this opportunity. Volunteers are welcomed!
