At the Precoa “Blanket Day” for Project Linus, employees of this civic minded organization joined to make 81 fleece blankets for a special donation to the Portland/Vancouver Project Linus Chapter. View their short video to see these wonderful people at work ending in the delivery to Jodene and Marg Fine, January 29th.
A free pattern has been added to the website, a gift from Rob Appell Designs, Morro Bay, California. Visit Rob’s website for other beautiful patterns available for purchase. This connection with Rob happened because we said “hello” and started talking about Project Linus and what we do for kids. It proves that people care and want to help.
We’re all in this together.
When a hurricane named Sandy ripped into the east coast, devastating children’s lives up and down the eastern seaboard, those of us in the rest of the country could do little more than watch and want desperately to help.
Project Linus, once again stepped up and blankets for children in need of a really big hug are on their way to eastern chapters from all over the country.
Yesterday we sent 25 blankets to Donna Clarke, a Coordinator from the Lower DelMarVA Chapter of Project Linus. We could not have done this without the help of Orion Medical Supply; they have provided in-kind shipping for our blankets for our chapter for years to help children in natural disasters and those participating in the Snowball Express. Orion stands willing to ship our excess blankets to Chapters across the country in desperate need. It is this kind of charitable help that makes it possible for us to help people just as if they were our neighbors.
THANK YOU Orion Medical Supply for your continued support that makes it possible to put one of our blankets on a child beyond our ability to drive!
We are pleased that we are launching our new chapter website. It has been a long time coming and would still be on the back burner if it wasn’t for Walter. He has spent hours learning how and then worked hard to put together this website for us. We hope you enjoy the new look and come back often to visit and see new postings and how it continues to develop.
Walter has shown again that he can do just about anything he sets his mind to – I love and appreciate him so much! Thanks for a job well done. (I promise that both cars will soon be in the garage for the winter.)
