Project Linus Sew-In @ El Kadir Shrine Club
Feb 21 @ 4:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Kirksville, MO – The 16th Annual National Project Linus “Make A Blanket Day” event will be held on Saturday, February 21, 2015, at the El Kadir Shrine Club of Kirksville. The mission of Project Linus is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade, washable blankets and afghans, lovingly crafted by volunteer blanketeers. Blankets for children in need will be assembled at the El Kadir Shrine Club, located at 2401 S. Baltimore St. in Kirksville, and we would like to invite the community to attend.
No sewing experience is needed to join in the fun! Anyone who can learn to tie a square not is invited to participate in the event anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
“Volunteers may bring a completed blanket, or bring their own sewing machine and complete on of the precut kits available during the event,” stated Conni Douvier, North Central Missouri Chapter (NCMC) Coordinator. “Community involvement is so vital to our success at this event.”
Last year’s event resulted in 411 blankets made or donated to the local chapter with more than 85 volunteers present. The NCMC has set a goal of 500 blankets for this year’s event.
The NCMC of Project Linus has delivered over 7,055 blankets to area children in need. For more information on the Sew-In event and to learn more about Project Linus contact Douvier at (660)947-4315/douvier@nemr.net or visit their website at projectlinus.org.
