Hurricane Harvey update from Deb Miller:

The Project Linus national office and I take the delivery of the beautiful blankets you make very seriously.  This includes ensuring to the best of our abilities that they are given in the spirit we all intend – to a child in a traumatic situation, not to be sold or and not to be loaned to the child and ask them to return it later.  In doing this, sometimes it takes a little while to get the details of responses to disaster efforts such as Harvey coordinated.  These details have finally fallen place.

 The PL national office is developing a great relationship with Missouri Star Quilting Company.  Chapters across the nation are working to collect and ship 5,000 blankets to Missouri Star.  PL Volunteers and others from around the area will help them sort and package the blankets to be delivered by one of their trucks to locations in Texas and eventually into the hands of children impacted by the Hurricane.  Project Linus of East TN sent 50 blankets to support this effort.  We will send more if they are needed.

 Additionally, I have worked locally to secure transport of blankets to Texas that will go into the hands of children impacted by the Hurricane.  The Big Emory Baptist Association is working directly with Baptist Churches and relief organizations in Texas.  They are taking trucks down with needed items.  PL of East TN as sent 50 blankets as a part of this effort.
