Our Commander In Chief

The Linus Connection would not exist without Stephanie Sabatini, and that's a fact! She is the tireless mind behind our existence. Congratulations to Stephanie on 5 wonderful years of providing comfort to children through blankets!

Workday

It's never all play for The Linus Connection! We still had blankets to sort - an astonishing 430 were turned in, a record for us! There were also labels to sew and blankets to fold! We welcomed a group of Camp Fire Girls and had some of our regular younger volunteers with us.
