Blanket Count for Taxes
The 2013 blanket count for each donor will be available at the February meeting. Make sure to ask for a signed receipt before completing your income tax. If you need your final count before that time, please email Jennifer

Please note that The Linus Connection can only provide you with your actual blanket count for 2013, we cannot put a value on your donation.

Yarn Donations Needed
Do you have worsted weight acrylic yarn stashed away that you never got around to using? Share it with The Linus Connection and our volunteers will make it into beautiful afghans! Donations can be brought to the monthly meetings or taken to one of our drop off locations.

Camp Quilts
It's almost time for camp blankets! We will begin our annual collection of Camp Quilts at our March 2014 meeting. Please remember that the camp facilities can only accept quilts because yarn and fleece blankets like leaves and twigs a bit too much! During Camp Quilt collection, we will continue to provide quilts, yarn and fleece blankets for distribution to our usual recipient other facilities. Camp quilts need are larger sizes for school-aged children, ages 7 - 17. Thank you to everyone that donates every month and for helping to make camp quilt donations possible!

Drop-Off Donations
Do you drop your donations off at one of our donation drop-off locations? Use our handy printable donation form to make it clear where your donation is going and who it is from. This helps to make sure that ALL Linus donations reach us and that you will receive credit for your hard work.

The Size is Right!
Not sure what size to make your blanket? Have friend that needs more information to make blankets for donation? Our handy printable Blanket Specifications sheet will answer all your questions! Look for our new handy laminated pink cards at the next meeting for a pocket-sized guide.
