October 2016 Newsletter

Little ones learn early that 
babies need a blanket hug!! 

                    The Children Our Volunteers Serve:   

 All of Salt Lake County’s growing population.  It seems as though there is an ever-increasing need and an ever-increasing number of children in crisis in S. L. County.
That’s because the county is growing at an amazing rate and has reached 1,030,000 in 2016.   It stands to reason that along with that population growth there will also be more children in desperate situations. 

Our volunteers serve children in these cities of Salt Lake County: 
Salt Lake City, Sandy, West Valley City, South Salt Lake, West Jordan, Murray, Midvale, Holladay, Riverton, Taylorsville, Cottonwood Heights, Herriman, Alta, East Millcreek

SLC Youth Services - Boys and Girls Group Home

Last month we picked up a new distribution site – SLC Youth Services.  This boys’ and girls’ group home is a place of refuge, safety and shelter for children/youth.  (The Christmas Box provides that same service for younger children)

Received Thank You Notes:
 “Thank you for your blanket donation today! That was so generous!  We appreciate your kindness and you are assured that our teen youth on campus will appreciate these blankets”

  “Dear Project Linus Members!
     Thank you so very much for the wonderful blankets you donate to our babies and their parents. They are always well-made beautiful works of art.  We only wish you could see the joy on the parent’s faces when they see this gift in their going-home bags. 
                  Much Love To You,
                  The Staff & Babies - St. Mark’s NICU”

          Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church

Many churches throughout the valley sponsor special service project events once a year.  This one is called “God’s Work Our Hands”.  The volunteers pictured here have made blankets for P L to distribute to children. 


 Note:      As of the end of this month the national PL store is back up  and operating.  Phone number is the same:  
New Address is:   
                           Project Linus
                           P. O. Box 1548
                           Belton, MO 64012

Many thanks to all of you Blanketers and P.L. supporters for all you do for children.  Hugs to all of you.        Millie
