Project Linus Sending Blanket Hugs to Sandy Hook School

Caring people who have stitched, knitted and quilted in communities around the country are sending hugs in the form of blankets to Sandy Hook Elementary School.  Project Linus volunteers have organized hundreds of quilts in hopes of comforting survivors of the school shooting tragedy.

A portion of those quilts are from the East Tennessee chapter that Flour Sack Mama previously told you about.    Chapter leader Deb Miller said, "Project Linus of East Tennessee was honored to send 25 blankets to the children at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.  If you'd like to help with shipping costs, donations are welcome."

National Vice President Mary Balagna shared, "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....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."
