A Local Thank You!

We received this via e-mail from a grateful parent:

My daughter broke her arm on the playground at school. She was fortunate enough to receive one of your charming blankets at Tahoe Forest Hospital in Truckee CA. This blanket is beautiful, and we keep it as a keepsake. We appreciate your loving kindness.

Thank you to the Blanketeers of the Project Linus Nevada County Chapter!   You are appreciated!

A Little Friday Inspiration

Leave a comment

Our Chapter delivered blankets to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital ER this morning. As I walking through with 3 very large bags of blankets slung over my shoulders, a staff member called out, “More blankets? Thank you! We love the blankets. They are the BEST blankets!”.  I thanked him and continued through the area as a wave of “thank you!” sounded from all around the ER.

We also received this note from Project Linus National Headquarters, sent in by a parent:

This organization meant the world to me when my 20 month old was hospitalized for 4 days. We rushed him to the ER not thinking to grab anything on our way out the door. Once at the hospital I remember thinking I don’t have any of the things that will comfort him when he wakes up. Luckily the nurses immediately put one of these blankets on him and it made me feel like he had something to comfort him through an awful time. Thank you so much for this wonderful cause.  It means the world to parents everywhere.

A good way to start the St. Patrick’s Day weekend!  Thank you Blanketeers!

We received an e-mail with a photo and note.  I believe this blanket was donated via the Tall Pines Group.  Thank you, Blanketeers, for supporting our Nevada County Chapter and the children we serve!

“This is (our son), he is 7. We appreciate your gift.”

2017 Beale AFB Baby Shower

Leave a comment

Cory Moore, one of our Chapter’s longest Blanketeers (since we opened in 2005!), manned the Project Linus table at the 2017 Beale AFB Baby Shower on Saturday.

Cory was in charge of distributing blankets to parents-to-be or military families who have had a child within the last year.  Our Nevada County Chapter donated blankets to this event, as well as other goodies (see photos below) donated by our dedicated and supportive Blanketeers.

Photos, taken by Cory, are here:

You do not need to establish a Dropbox account to view these photos.  There are photos of the blankets donated by our Chapter as well as general photos of the event.  This is the third year of the Beale Baby Shower and the second year our Nevada County Chapter has participated.

In the 12 years we’ve been coordinating the Nevada County Chapter, I can honestly say this is the most appreciative group of people we’ve worked with.  Each person we came in contact with thanked us profusely and were genuinely grateful for our support and the donations we provided—-to the point of “goosebumps”, “lump in my throat” and teary eyes (I witnessed the tears when we delivered!).

Thank you seems pretty trite in light of the response we received from our dedicated Blanketeers but know it’s a very sincere thank you.  Your support was appreciated beyond words!

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!
