Calling all groups and individuals in the Greater Boston area to join us in our mission to provide a sense of security, love and comfort to local children who are undergoing illness, crisis or other needs!

Project Linus is a national non-profit organization that aims to provide a sense of love and security to children undergoing illness, trauma, or some other need by providing new blankets created by caring volunteers.

Our volunteer blanketeers have donated and delivered over 85,500 new, homemade washable blankets to children in the Greater Boston area since 2001!

If you are interested in making or donating blankets you must read our blanket guidelines! We receive many blankets that we can’t donate and don’t want to waste time and materials. Please follow the guidelines, suggested patterns or contact us for instructions!

If you are looking to donate, volunteer behind the scenes, organize a blanket-making event, request a blanket for a child in need, or have any questions, please contact us!

In March 2022, our coordinators dropped off blankets to a church organization in Jamaica Plain that will send them with supplies to Poland for Ukrainian refugees. We are so grateful to all of our individual volunteers, as well as scouts, corporations, service organizations dropping blankets off to coordinators and to JoAnn Fabrics. We donated hundreds of blankets to the effort, and are still able to have blankets to support our local organizations.
