The Linus Connection cannot put a value your donations for you, but there are some good resources available that can help. Learn more about charity donations on about.com or visit itsdeductible.com as an easy way to keep track of your donations throughout the year. When calculating the value of your donation, please remember that volunteer labor is not tax-deductible.
If you have a friend or group that you think might be interested in volunteering either short or long-term, please point them to The Linus Connection. Whether you can make just one blanket or many, Linus needs your talents! Do you know a student that needs volunteer hours? The Linus Connection is a great way to give time to a charity and earn those hours! For more information on When and Where we need volunteers, please visit our website.
The Linus Connection Library of donated books is now open! There will be select books available to check out at month meetings or you can request a book online. Please be sure to read the library guidelines before requesting a book online. This information is available both on the Library book list page and on the request form page. Donations of easy quilt, knit and crochet books are still being accepted. Please make sure books are at least 80% quilts or afghans that are appropriate for Linus blankets. And remember, the easier, the better!
