“GOD’S WORK – OUR HANDS”  Church Members Make Blankets


     Again this year, the volunteers from Zion Lutheran Church and also from Our
Saviour’s Lutheran Church have made blankets for Project Linus to distribute.  The blankets were created especially for the children who are seen at The Children’s Justice Center.  They have expressed a need for blankets to give these children during their forensic medical exams - which are a part of investigations of child abuse.  Thanks folks for your help and kindness.

Spotlight – Best Wishes to Billie Anderson

      Thanks to Billie Anderson for her contribution and months of membership in our chapter.   She will be moving to Kingwood Texas this month where she and Phil will live in their newly built home which will be close to their children.  Billie’s crochet projects have been beautiful and she also bakes us goodies on blanket day.  We have enjoyed her smiling face and enthusiasm at our blanket day events.  We wish her joy in her new home.

Packaging for delivery 

Did you know that a card with this message is attached to every blanket with the Linus label that we distribute within Salt Lake County.  This gives a personal touch to the gift.  We want the child who receives the blanket to know that it was made with love by a real person, who cares about him/her.

        Together we can do great things!  Imagine how big of an impact it is to a child, when they received a bright colored, beautiful blanket, handmade by a volunteer like you!  We appreciate each and every one of you and together we are the SALT LAKE COUNTY CHAPTER OF PROJECT LINUS!

We hope to see you all soon!

Kristin & Millie
