December 2014 Newsletter


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, 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.
