Hello Blanket Friends,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Omaha Project Linus Birthday Party is cancelled September 23, 2023 at Bryan High School. The next blanket day will be held in March of 2024. (This will make our holiday blanket collection and donations a little more challenging, so please consider making an extra blanket {or two (: } for the Holidays!) PLEASE pass the word to everyone you think might be going.If you have blankets ready to donate please take them to the Country Sampler Quilt Shop located at 120th and Center Street and we will pick them up from there.

Any questions, please email or call (402) 212-3975.
Thank you so much for being the very best blanketeers and taking such great care of our local children when they need a soft warm hug! Thank you, Ginny

As the Holidays are upon us, so many of you have been reaching out to us wondering how you can help during these crazy times.  Seriously, Linus has the VERY BEST volunteers!!!  If there is one thing that I have learned from this (rotten) Covid--- is that people are so very GOOD!  Our cup is overflowing with wonderful deeds here at Linus.  You bless us with the most basic love that can be expressed, the love of a child. 

If you would like to give a local child the soft, warm hug of a comforting handmade blanket--- here are some ideas:

If you don't have time to make a blanket for Linus, we would love ❤❤❤️ to have gift cards(or cash, if you like) to JoAnns, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Walmart, etc... to give to our volunteers to purchase fabric, yarn, fleece, thread, batting---anything they might need to continue to make blankets.  With many of us staying close to home, our blanketeers are making lots of beautiful blankets and could really us a little "extra" shopping money to continue their craft.  

Please mail your donations to:

You can make a blanket and drop it off at one of our local drop-off spots listed on this website.  We accept blankets all year round, so it doesn't have to be for the holidays only.  If you want to make a double-tied fleece blankets, there is a great video located below to follow.  It will help you make the perfect Linus blanket! 🙂

Bless you, my sweet friends.  Thank you for all you do! ❤️Gin
