The DCTC Beta Theta Tau chapter of Phi Theta Kappa is participating in Project Linus this February by making blankets. Project Linus is a non-profit organization that provides blankets to children in need. The following is taken from the Project Linus website www.projectlinus.org.
The Greater Twin Cities Area, MN Chapter of Project Linus serves the following Minnesota counties: Anoka, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington. Our chapter was established July 2006.
Project Linus has a two-fold mission
FIRST, it is our mission to 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 volunteers called “blanketeers.”
SECOND, it is our mission to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.
Anyone, any age, can help these children. It is within your power to make a difference!
Project Linus is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, and is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions. Please consult your tax advisor to determine the tax deductibility of your gift.
In order to provide blankets for as many children as possible, we need your help. Please consider donating fleece fabric. Each youth blanket requires 1 ½ yards of fleece . If you would rather make a monetary donation (it costs approximately $6 per blanket), please bring cash to Nicole Meulemans or Anna Voight in Student Life. Our goal is to make 50 blankets! Deadline for donations is Thursday, February 7th at noon.
If you have any questions, please contact Carrie Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
