The Linus Connection had a successful Parking Lot Meeting on Saturday, April 17, 2021. We collected many quilts and blankets, passed out lots of supplies, and enjoyed visiting with our fellow volunteers.
Thank you to everyone who came out and helped or stopped by to pick up supplies or drop off donations. We hope to see you all again very soon!
All loaded up after Saturday's collection!

BEFORE YOU DROP OFF YOUR QUILTS, BLANKETS, & QUILT TOPS...
ALL blankets should include a paper tag with a poem and a sew-on Linus label. This is especially important right now. If you are out of labels, please contact Anne and she'll get some to you.
Preparing your donation:
- Please place donations in a plastic garbage bag or similar and include your full name and what you're donating so we can log it in (just like the sign-in sheet at monthly meetings). For your convenience, we have created a printable donation form. You don't have to use the form, but we do need the information listed for an accurate blanket count and donations must say "for The Linus Connection" so they will not be misdirected (see photo). If you would like a receipt emailed to you, please be sure to include your email address.
- 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.
- Blankets will be distributed to our usual recipient facilities as needed. Delivery volunteers will be contacted personally if you have a delivery.
Please keep an eye on the website, join our email list, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Instagram for the latest Linus information. We also have a Facebook Group just for Linus Connection volunteers where you can share photos and chat! You can join here.
