Project Linus Tucson Teams Up with Christ Lutheran Church

Project Linus Tucson was recently highlighted in the Vail Voice for the service project it conducted at the Del Webb Rancho Del Lago in Vail. Chapter leaders Renee Lassise and Dale Shoots met up with 25 volunteers from the quilting group of Christ Lutheran Church. The group┬ámade 60 blankets that will be distributed throughout hospitals in Pima County to children in need. The quilters from Christ Lutheran Church meet on the first Monday of every month. They have donated 142 blankets to Project Linus Tucson so far this year. They believe that “we may not be able to make much change in the world at large, but as individuals, our work, our volunteerism, and our service to others can make a big change in our part of the world.”

Project Linus Tucson is very grateful for the contributions of Christ Lutheran Church, and we look forward to continuing our work with their volunteers.

Blanket Hugs on KGUN-9

Tucson’s KGUN-9 ran a feature about Project Linus Tucson yesterday. Chapter President Rene Lassise told reporters Tina Jennings and Heather Stricker what Project Linus is all about.

We hope you’ll join us in sharing love with children in need. We have blanket drop off locations all over Pima County. We even have blanketeers down in Benson! Check out our blanket guidelines for information about how to share a blanket hug.

Not a knitter, crocheter, or quilter? No problem! We need all kinds of things to keep our nonprofit volunteer-run organization going. Check out our Donate page to see how you can provide financial support for Project Linus Tucson.
