    Project Linus of East TN was honored to send 25 blankets to the children at Sandy Hook Elementary in CT.   We also sent  60 blankets for the children impacted by the tornadoes in Oklahoma.  If you’d like to help offset the cost of the shipping costs, donations are welcome.


    Below is an update from the PL national office Vice President Mary Balagna - it helps you understand how WONDERFUL our PL leadership and coordinators around the country really are:


    My heart hurts. I just finished organizing 700+ blankets to be sent to the children who attend the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. I put out the request to our amazing chapter coordinators and it took me less than 55 minutes to reach our goal. What a privilege it is for me to be a part of such a kind and generous group of selfless volunteers. Our coordinators in the CT area simply  dropped everything to make arrangements for blankets to be delivered to the children affected. Of course, they did not have enough blankets to fill the need on their own so we appealed to our coordinators across the country. Coordinators nationwide immediately responded and in no time the need was met. What a heartbreaking and senseless tragedy. We do know that the hug of a blanket can bring a bit of comfort during such a time and we are so grateful to be able to provide them to these special children. Wish we didn't have to...but glad we did.
