How to Help


Project Linus Greater Boston Chapter is 100% volunteer run! We love our knitters, crocheters and quilters, but there is no prior experience or skill needed to make blankets or for the many other roles we need filled! There are jobs and roles at any commitment level for any age group or individual who wants to get involved.

 

Here are just some ideas of the tasks we need help with!

Make Blankets

Blankets of all styles are welcomed, including quilts, tied comforters, fleece blankets, crocheted or knitted afghans, and receiving blankets in cheerful child-friendly colors with themes for children premies to teenagers.

Please read our Blankets section for any restrictions about blankets or to find a local Drop Off Location!
