It is with sad hearts that we share the loss of one of our own. 

Rekha Nadkarni, a long-time Linus volunteer, passed away June 29, 2013. She donated hundreds of handmade crochet blankets to children in need across Central Texas through her work with our organization. Our hearts go out to her family. She will be missed by one and all.

Annual Challenge
Join us for the 9th Annual Linus Connection Challenge! All volunteers are invited to participate. Challenge packs will be available for sign out after Show & Tell at the June - September meetings.  Challenge blankets will be on display at the Annual Birthday Celebration in October. Challenge blankets should follow the usual blanket making guidelines, available here.

See previous year's Challenge/Birthday Celebrations for more information.
