How You Can Help

Our Chapter of Project Linus depends on volunteers who make and donate new, handmade, washable blankets and afghans. These blankets, lovingly created by volunteer blanketeers, provide love and a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. You can get blanket guidelines here and find drop off locations here.  We also need volunteers to help with deliveries, pick ups, cutting fabric, quilting services, sewing labels on blankets and much more. 

Please contact Deb Miller via email or phone at 865
-719-2862 if you are interested in donating or volunteering.
