The Linus Connection is a Central Texas 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to make and deliver handmade security blankets for children in crisis situations in our area. The blankets go to children in hospital emergency rooms, in crisis centers, in foster care, battered women's shelters, to any child who is in need of a little extra security in their lives.

The Challenge Begins!
Challenge kits and rules were handed out at our June meeting. If you missed it, don't worry, you can still pick up your Challenge pack in July! Question? Email Osie.
The Annual Blanket Challenge is part of our Birthday Celebration held every October. It's a great opportunity for our volunteers to try something new and showcase their talents to visitors and recipient facilities. This year's event will be Saturday, October 21.
We've wrapped up Camp Quilts for the year and want to thank each and every volunteer who went above and beyond to help us reach our goal over. Now that camp collection has concluded, we'll start saving up for Back to School in August and various Holiday events in December. Keep those blankets coming and as always, THANK YOU for all of your hard work!
Please remember: Paper Tags should include your first name at the top.
ALL blankets should include a paper tag and a sew on label (see diagram above).

Our volunteers make hundreds of blankets each month to meet the need of children in crisis in Central Texas. To do this, many supplies are needed. We are constantly in need of washable 100% acrylic yarn. Leftover balls of yarn to full skeins are gratefully accepted.
