Project Linus NJ, Inc. (Blankie Depot)
July 19, 2013
Anybody who enjoys creating crafty yarn items can join this group and make an immediate impact. All our handmade projects go to people in need and the thank you notes we receive make you realize how you are touching lives. The organization makes me believe in random acts of kindness - not just the words, but actually giving and receiving from people you don't know. During Hurricane Sandy our director received blankets from all over the country which she distributed to families in our immediate area. She also connected senders and receivers via email. Can you imagine how heart-warming it is to know that your hand knit blanket is being used by a child who is still living in a shelter? That is just one example of how Project Linus is a great nonprofit.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make it clear that volunteers can drop off blankets and don't need to commit to meeting on a weekly basis.
