JUNE MEETING CANCELED
As previously mentioned in June, St. Philip's United Methodist Church, where we hold our monthly meetings, is currently closed. We should have an update in July.
- Once again, please make sure your individual quilts and blankets are labeled and have a poem with your first name. If you are out of labels, please contact Anne. She will mail some to you.
- Weighted blanket tops needed! We're especially in need of sizes 9x11, 10x12, 12x14. Find out more about Weighted Blankets here.
- Camp Requests have been filled for the year. Thank you to everyone who helped us provide quilts and blankets to area camps!
- We are especially in need of middle and teen quilts & blankets for regular deliveries. More about sizes here.
- Blankets will be distributed to our usual recipient facilities as needed. Delivery volunteers will be contacted personally if you have a delivery.
- If you are or have been sick, PLEASE STAY HOME and take care of yourself. Some of our facilities do need blankets, but it's okay to hold on to your donations until later. Safety first!
- Keep sewing, keep crocheting & keep knitting! We have no way of knowing how this health crisis may affect our group or the children of Central Texas in the future. Your talented hearts & hands are appreciated!
- If you would like to connect with your fellow volunteers during this difficult time, we have a Facebook Group just for Linus Connection volunteers. It's a great place to share photos, ask questions, and connect with people you usually only see at meetings. Please join us here.
- If you are in desperate need of supplies or have some other Linus-related question not answered here, please contact one of the Board Members (emails and what we do below) and we'll do everything we can to help.
