From page A10 | January 24, 2014 |

On behalf of the children of Yolo County, Project Linus of Yolo County volunteers want to thank the community that has supported us this past year.

We are happy to report that during 2013, our chapter collected and distributed 1,490 handmade blankets to the following agencies in Yolo County: FamiliesFirst, the Yolo Crisis Nursery, Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee (STEAC), Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center, CommuniCare Health Centers in Davis and West Sacramento, Davis Community Meals, Davis Police Department, Davis Fire Department, Pregnancy Support Group, Fourth and Hope, Progress Ranch, Child Welfare Services, Yolo County Family Resource Center, Woodland Healthcare, Yolo County Head Start Program, Yolo County Health Department Visiting Nurses and the Yolo County Children’s Alliance.

We also donated blankets to the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford, which also serves the children of Yolo County. A large shipment of blankets also was sent to Snowball Express, a group that serves children of our fallen military heroes.

A big thank-you to Scott Yoder of Pak Mail in East Davis, who donated his time, shipping supplies and a large discount on the shipping costs for the blankets our chapter sent to the Snowball Express.

Thanks also to the following groups: the Kiwanis Club of Davis for a generous monetary donation, the Davis Cooperative Community Fund for awarding us a grant, the Davis Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4969 for their donation to help defray the costs of shipping blankets to Snowball Express, Intel Corp. and Nugget Markets for their monthly donation through the scrip program.

Along with a big thank-you to the volunteers of Project Linus of Yolo County and to other community members for making blankets, thanks also to the following groups for their blanket donations: Flying Needles Quilting Guild, Da Vinci Charter Academy, St. Martin’s Prayer Shawl Ministry, Davis Korean Church, Girl Scout Troop 1469, UC Davis Circle K International and the Davis 1st Ward Relief Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In addition, thanks to all of you who helped make this possible, including Maria Lucchesi, community services supervisor at the Davis Senior Center, who provides a room for our monthly gathering and Debbie Davis, editor of The Davis Enterprise, for all of the wonderful publicity for our chapter.
Project Linus of Yolo County has donated more than 6,500 handmade blankets to children since September 2008.

Anyone who is interested in making a blanket for Project Linus, attending one of the gatherings in Davis or making a charitable donation of fabric, yarn or money, may contact Diane McGee at [email protected] or 530-753-3436.
