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.
