We received the following thank you note from very grateful parents.  Names have been concealed for privacy.  Please note, these parents have been advised that all credit for the blanket received is due to our Blanketeers who work tirelessly to support our Chapter and the children of Nevada County.  Thank you Project Linus Nevada County Blanketeers—this note is for you!

Where do our Project Linus blankets go?

Leave a comment

This rates as a frequently asked question.  And rightfully so!  Our volunteers aka Blanketeers, spend countless hours and precious funds making blankets and quilts to donate to our Nevada County Chapter.  We appreciate and respect the efforts of our Blanketeers, making sure the facilities and agencies we deliver to feel the same.

Currently, our main regular recipients are both Nevada County hospitals—Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital in Grass Valley and the Tahoe Forest Hospital in Truckee.  Child Advocates also receives regular deliveries.  Other recipients include the annual Beale Baby Shower program, domestic violence agencies and Child Protective Services.  These are not regulars, but we deliver when they are in need.  Once or twice a year, our Chapter sends letters to 10-20 County agencies reminding these children’s agencies that we’re here for them if they need blankets.

Please be assured our Chapter is protective of who gets donated blankets.  If the agency is unappreciative or does not comply with our distribution guidelines, donations to that agency will be discontinued.

We value  our Blanketeers and the support they provide!  Our Nevada County Project Linus Chapter could not do what we do without them!

In keeping with the spirit of the season…..

We have collected many, many thank you notes from parents all over the country, thanking various Project Linus Chapters for blankets received.  In this season of thankfulness, we’ll be publishing a letter a day from grateful parents, grandparents and sometimes the children themselves!  We hope you find these letters as inspiring as they are to us!

A Local Thank You!

We received the following thank you via email over the weekend:

“I wanted to thank you and anyone else who helps you with the quilts you make for the hospital. My 2 year old was in the ER last night and had to get stitches in her face. She was pretty traumatized. The nurses brought her a beautiful quilt that was so filled with love, it really calmed her down. She has spent today carrying it around the house saying it’s her “cozy”.

Please know how much this kind gesture touched this mama’s heart.

Warmest Regards”

To the dedicated volunteers supporting our Chapter, this thank you is for you!  Thank you for all you do!

Nevada County Project Linus Chapter Turns 10!

Leave a comment

March 2nd, 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of our Project Linus Nevada County Chapter!  These ten years have flown by, but there have been so many gratifying adventures and treasured friendships developed along the way.  We’re also on target this year to reach another milestone in blankets donated to Nevada County children since we opened our doors in 2005!  I am so very, very grateful for all the wonderful Blanketeers who faithfully support the Chapter and help us reach these goals.  None of this could have happened without you!

Thank you all for your support of our Chapter and for helping us provide a Community hug to children in need.

A Chapter Thank You!
