Lubbock Chapter of Project Linus Holding Annual Blanket Workday at LCU Saturday

LUBBOCK, TX (NEWS RELEASE) - The following is a news release from the Lubbock Chapter of Project Linus:

Visitors of all ages are encouraged to join Project Linus Lubbock Chapter blanketeers at its Annual Workday at the Lubbock Christian University Library on Saturday, November 18th, 2017 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Annual Workday is an opportunity to share the mission of Project Linus and we invite
visitors to join us in making blankets for local children in need. Participants may bring their
own projects, work on blankets already started, or just drop in to meet the blanketeers, have a
cup of coffee and learn more about the Lubbock chapter.

Don't know how to sew? Not a problem! You can help make a soft, cuddly fleece blanket
without sewing. Can you tie a square knot? Then you can help finish a quilt!

Inspired by Charles Schultz's 1954 security blanket-toting character, Linus van Pelt, Project
Linus has over 400 chapters in communities throughout the United States and Canada.
Nationally, Project Linus has collected over 6 million blankets for children in need of a
handmade hug.

The only Project Linus chapter in the Panhandle of Texas, the Lubbock Chapter blanketeers
have made nearly 15,000 handmade blankets to provide comfort and security to local
children who have experienced trauma, tragedy or illness.
