Project Linus

Volunteer Blanket Making Club

This club, hosted by Ellington Girl Scouts, will be making blankets again to be donated to "Project Linus." The Project Linus is a non-profit organization that provides homemade blankets to children in  need. Their blankets are lovingly made by adults and children from all  walks of life  and many different sources. These blankets provide love, a  sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously  ill,  traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new,  handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer  "blanketeers."

AGE LEVEL: 5th grade to 12th grade

All  skill levels are welcome. We will be knitting, crocheting and  weaving.  Participation can count towards community service hours.

WHEN: Mondays, 3/12, 3/26, 4/2. 4/16, 4/30, 5/7, 5/21, 6/4

TIME: 6 pm to 7:30 pm

Fee: Free

LOCATION: Ellington Youth Services, 31 Arbor Way
