Project Linus donates blankets



Project Linus Chapter Coordinator Jama Carper (left) and Georgia Department of Family and Children Services County Director Mary Beth Lukich show off gifts of blankets and afghans made for Wilkes County families. “Project Linus is a 100 percent volunteer non-profit with a two-fold mission,” Carper said. “First, to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans created by volunteer ‘blanketeers,’ and second, to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups for the benefit of children.” Anyone, any age can help these children and become a blanketeer, Carper said. “Make a blanket, donate it to your local chapter of Project Linus. It will be passed along to a deserving child. If you’re not inclined to make a blanket, materials (yarns, fabric, batting, monetary donations, etc.) are gratefully accepted.” For more information please contact Carper at 706- 274-1053, jamacarper@yahoo.com, or www.projectlinus.org Project Linus Chapter Coordinator Jama Carper (left) and Georgia Department of Family and Children Services County Director Mary Beth Lukich show off gifts of blankets and afghans made for Wilkes County families. “Project Linus is a 100 percent volunteer non-profit with a two-fold mission,” Carper said. “First, to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans created by volunteer ‘blanketeers,’ and second, to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups for the benefit of children.” Anyone, any age can help these children and become a blanketeer, Carper said. “Make a blanket, donate it to your local chapter of Project Linus.
