MABD RSVP March 3, 2018

Welcome to the
Philadelphia Chapter of Project Linus
Mission Statement:
  • First Provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.”
  • Second Provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.


 

Project Linus is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

March 2018: 

MABD update: Our March MABD had to be cancel due to the Friday March 2nd storm which resulted in the library not having power.  We hope to reschedule in the near future.

Our annual Make a blanket day is scheduled for Saturday March 3, 2018 at the Horsham Library.  Use the link to the left to send me an email confirming you are attending.

WHEN: March 3, 2018 (10:15-1:45)

WHERE: Horsham Township Library, 435 Babylon Road, Horsham PA

I appreciate everyones support from making blankets and quilts, labeling blankets, delivering to facilities or donations.  The Philadelphia chapter needs everyone?s help to continue our mission of providing comfort to sick and traumatized children.

I get a lot of questions on how to properly make a fleece blanket that the Philadelphia chapter of Project Linus will accept.  I have included a video on the left hand side, that is very informational.  Also very important  you must cut off the selvage edge.

Camp Erin Information:

In 2017 we donated 120 quilts for the children attending the camp.

In 2018 we expect to donate between 120-130 quilts.  So far we have about 80 quilts, so we still need more 50x70" quilts.
