received a generous donation of new, homemade blankets from the Oak Park
Chapter of Project Linus! Sharon Kurth, the Chapter Coordinator, brought in
four dozen blankets for our Children’s Birthday Project. These fun and colorful
blankets will reach needy children as part of the birthday boxes that HSP
provides to the impoverished children enrolled in the program. Each box is
filled with gifts of toys, games, books, school supplies, stuffed animals and
party supplies to help the child celebrate and make the birthday memorable.
Project Linus is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that has chapters nationwide. They collect homemade blankets to give to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. Over the years, they have donated 2 million blankets to children all over the country.
Each handmade blanket thoughtfully donated by Project Linus shows love and care to the impoverished children we serve. We are so appreciative of Project Linus’s kindness and generosity.
