Thanks to the volunteers

of Project Linus

Thank you, thank you, thank you to our amazing volunteers. On Feb. 18, the Greater Cleveland Area Chapter of Project Linus successfully hosted and celebrated the first annual "Make a Blanket Day." Project Linus (www.projectlinus.org) is a national non-profit focused on providing handmade blankets to kids in need.

Chapters are organized across the country to collect blankets from and return them to kids in our communities. The Greater Cleveland Area Chapter of Project Linus focuses on Lake, Geauga, Portage and parts of Summit and Cuyahoga counties. Thanks to the generosity of friends in Northeast Ohio, the Greater Cleveland Area Chapter made and processed nearly 500 blankets because of the Feb. 18 National Make a Blanket Day events.

The Greater Cleveland Area Chapter opened in April 2016 and has donated nearly 1,500 blankets to kids in need in Northeast Ohio. We are so grateful for our selfless volunteers who make a difference every day and we are seeking additional volunteers to expand our mission. If you are interested in learning how to make blankets for donation, visit the patterns page on the national website mentioned above for pattern ideas or reach out to us directly for community blanket making events. Please connect through our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/greatclepl) for local events.

Our year-round goal is to provide handmade blankets to kids in Northeast Ohio. We would love to create a stockpile of handmade blankets ready for donation but we cannot do it without the support from friends like you in our communities. Please consider bringing your friends together to make a difference for kids in Northeast Ohio. Thank you for your continued support of Greater Cleveland Area Project Linus.

Susan Bruce, Twinsburg
