Description:

Make a Blanket Day 2013 Project Linus is a 100% volunteer organization with a mission to provide a sense of comfort to children who are seriously ill or traumatized through the gifts of new, handmade blankets or afghans, crafted by volunteer “blanketeers.”All blankets donated to our local chapter of this nation-wide organization are given to seriously ill or traumatized children of the Greater Omaha and Council Bluffs area. This is an excellent opportunity to contribute something special to our local children in need. This is our Annual Make a Blanket Day for our chapter. Over the last 9 years we have donated over 43,000 blankets to local kids in need. Come help us celebrate! PLUS…Please bring your blankets to our celebration on March 2rd and for each new, handmade blanket you donate, you will receive a chance to win a new sewing machine--donated by Dr. Scott DeBates. We will draw for the sewing machine at the Make a Blanket Day Celebration. You don’t have to be present to win. When?
