We have some statistics we'd like to share with you for 2014. We distributed a total of 1874 blankets to children in Salt Lake County! Isn't that wonderful? This brings our total blanket distribution from the beginning of our chapter to over 13,600! Thank you to everyone who donates their time, materials, supplies. chapter funds (yes, we need donations of cash too!), mileage (Denna, Millie & Kristin making deliveries and picking up drop offs) and Our Saviour's Lutheran Church for the use of your building each month! We really appreciate those of you who organize your blanket events and bring us stacks of beautiful blankets! Every one of you makes a difference and contributes to what we can do for children in Salt Lake County!
Our February blanket workday will be held Monday, February 9th from 10:00am to 2:00pm at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church, 2500 East 3900 South, Holladay. In March we will be back on schedule meeting the first Monday of the month.
4. Hello! My name is Rudy and we had an adorable little girl yesterday and when we got to our room there was a beautiful blanket for our baby Aurora waiting for her. The blanket was made by Mary and we absolutely love it and we are extremely appreciative of the small things in life such as a blanket like this given to us. Thank you for your time and support and it's awesome that there are projects like Project Linus out there doing great things. Again, thank you all!
Once again the employees of American Express scheduled a couple of meetings to make some bright, colorful and fun blankets for our chapter. It was really fun to pull up in front of their building and see a cart stacked with blankets!

Again this year the Mitzvah day at Kol Ami produced lovely fringed fleece blankets for Project Linus - 23 of them! Thanks to Nicole Fenwick for all the shopping, and preparation of the fabric that she did in advance to make this day of service a great success. We at Project Linus appreciate the generous donation and the beautiful work.
