The 2017 Make-A-Blanket Day 
hosted by Ryan's Sewing & Vacuum at 5011 San Mateo Blvd NE.
was a huge success.

Project Linus Blanketeers and members of the Ryan sewing community came together to assemble Isolette Covers for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at UNMH. The babies get to keep their blankets when they go home and the unit uses hundreds every year so those who came to join in were helping to meet 
a very important need. 
Ryan's provided lunch and beverages in their great well-lit work space while 
our volunteers provided snacks in addition to their labors.
Jeana Brosseau did a fantastic job of managing the event with the use of great samples and the support of several of her Material Girls colleagues.

To be part of this fun work day mark your 2018 calendar right now. 
The Ryan's Make-A-Blanket day is always the first Saturday in February 
so reserve February 3, 2018 starting at 10:00 a.m.
Where do blankets come from?

In addition to the dozens of blanket makers who are part of a blanket-making group we have Blanketeers well into their nineties who can no longer drive but are still able to knit or crochet. They also creatively find ways to get yarn and see that their 
lovingly made blankets find their way to the chapter.  
We give thanks to them and to the family members and friends 
who assist them in their mission. 
Scroll down to see a list of groups we know about. 

There are even family members and friends who live clear across the country and give us the fruits of their labors because there is no chapter convenient to them.  
School programs, groups and individual sometimes choose Project Linus as their Service Project, and business owners open their stores to sponsor Make-A-Blanket days.

These are just a few of the hundreds of Blanketeers who provide gifts of warmth, comfort, security and love to the children served by our chapter. 
Blankets come in the mail from as far away as Florida. They come from people right here in New Mexico but don't live near a chapter - but they find a way to get them to us. When the heart is moved by the desire to gift a hurting child with warmth, security and love the blanket shows up. 
Happy Birthday to
Ronald McDonald House
