Wrap a child with Hope!

In just a few short years, the Lubbock Chapter Project Linus has provided handmade blankets for nearly 9000 West Texas children. The numbers are a testament to the dedicated blanketeers and the generosity of everyone who has donated time, supplies, materials, and funds.

The blanketeers of the Lubbock Chapter Project Linus selflessly give of their time, talents, and materials to make handmade blankets for local children suffering from illness, trauma, or devastating loss. The blanketeers quilt, crochet, knit, sew, and those who don't sew even make cuddly fleece blankets! They ask nothing for themselves, not even recognition.

 

Project Linus wins 4th place in the 2013 City Bank Texas Community Rewards event!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the voting! The $5,000 grant will help Project Linus Lubbock Chapter blanketeers buy materials for afghans, quilts, and blankets for more children who need the comfort of a blanket stitched with love. It will also enable the chapter to sponsor more blanket-making events for the public. We couldn't have done it without your support.

We are so thankful to City Bank for providing Community Rewards to nonprofit organizations. So much good will come from the results of this wonderful event and award.

bags of blanketsIt is impossible to know exactly how many Lubbock blanketeers there are because many of them leave bags of blankets at local drop-off locations, mail them from outlying communities, or join with others in a church group or other charitable organization to make a group donation.
