MC staff gathered yesterday to create blankets in support of Project Linus, a non-profit organization that aims to provide a sense of warmth and security to seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need children through the gift of new, handmade blankets and afghans.
Deb Kohan, Vice President (MC) and Director (MC en Español), organized the effort.
Project Linus has chapters in all 50 states and blankets are distributed to hospitals, shelters, or social service agencies. With headquarters in Bloomington, Illinois, its Central Illinois chapter alone donates roughly 350 blankets monthly.
