- October 2022 Meeting Highlights - The Linus Connection's 23rd Birthday Bash!
Every October we celebrate The Linus Connection's birthday with a Quilt Challenge and Silent Auction. All money raised goes to support The Linus Organization for our blanket making supplies, our storage unit, printing and office supplies and much much more! The Challenge Fabric was a donation from Noelann Brown's estate and this Challenge is dedicated to her memory. Thank you to Osie for organizing the Challenge for the 18th year and thank you to all the volunteers who pitched in to make this happen! Some of our newest blanket makers from the North American Taiwanese Women's Association shared a $500 donation from their group as well as $100 in personal donations. Thank you, ladies, we're delighted to have you as our volunteers! Thank you to everyone who donated items, especially Hobbs Bonded Fibers for a roll of their wonderful 80/20 Heirloom Batting, and to all those wonderful individuals who donated items both large and small, baskets, and more, all to support our non-profit. Every single donation makes this happen! Thanks also go out to Jennifer for organizing, and huge thanks to Sarah, Sheryl, Carol, & Susan for helping build 71 Silent Auction Baskets. Big thanks also to Suzanne and everyone else who helped us push through to the end! The biggest thank you goes out to our bidders for always making this a fun event and for your continued support of The Linus Connection. ♥

Delivery To Uvalde Update - A message from Stephanie Hi all. I had a very successful blanket delivery to Uvalde yesterday. We managed to collect (and Greg and I managed to load in the car) 252 security blankets and an additional 12 weighted blankets for them. This brings our Uvalde count to 452 blankets in 9 days. Amazing!! Our contact Diana was a Linus contributor when she lived in Burnet county and is working directly with the CASA office in Uvalde which is managing all of the grief support in Uvalde. Diana is going to let us know when they are running low and we’ll load up again. The reporter from KXAN asked me during our interview, how we were able to collect a full month’s worth of blankets in just over a week. I told her Linus blankets are like the loaves and fishes. They just start to multiply when you give them away. Thank you all so much for your support and hard work. You are all the best!!
