Hello Blanketeers and friends of Project Linus,
As we wrap up another year, we wanted to be sure to say THANK YOU to you
all! You do so much to help us provide
comfort and support to local children in crisis & make a difference in
their young lives. Your support of our chapter means so much to me and Barb, as
well as to the children receiving your wonderful blanket gifts. We have a wonderful group of giving people
who each offer their special talents so this chapter can accomplish so much
(including blanket makers, drop-off liaisons, ‘yarn mavens’, blanket labelers
& taggers, ‘repair’ squad, thrifty shoppers, blanket deliverers, fleece
preppers, blanket making group liaisons, hosts for meetings and special events
such as Make A Blanket Days (MABD), this year’s Country Fair, Garage Sale as
well as school and corporate MABD events, speakers, blanket sorters &
baggers, ink cartridge collectors, Amazon.com shoppers who click through from
our web site and earn us funds, quilt kit makers, fabric donation sorters, yarn
donation sorters, Craigslist sellers, fund raisers / grant requesters, and the
list goes on…).
As is our tradition, OUR DECEMBER MEETING will be in the daytime and
it’s a chance to celebrate the year’s accomplishments and share a holiday treat
with fellow blanketeers (potluck style – BRING SOME FINGER FOOD to share). Join us NEXT TUESDAY, DEC.9 at 1pm at Good
Samaritan Episcopal Church (15040 Union Ave San Jose 95124, at the Hwy 85
Union Ave exit).
We’ll be doing our final blanket sorting and bagging for the year very
soon after the meeting, so if you have ANY FINISHED BLANKETS, please BRING THEM
TO THE MEETING or TAKE THEM TO ONE OF THE DROP OFF LOCATIONS (PREFERABLY MARY
KELLY’S 1366 Milton Way San Jose 95125) BY WEDNESDAY DEC. 10 so we will
be able to distribute them this month.
We hope to see you at the meeting. We wish you all a joyous holiday
season and happy new year, and thanks again for helping us bring comfort and
happiness into the lives of some local children by sharing your time and
talents with Project Linus.
