Project Linus of Yolo County, with the help of volunteers and others in the community who wish to participate, will be making and sending blanks to children in need on the East Coast who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. The group’s goal is to collect 100 or more blankets through Monday.
The blankets will be sent to a Project Linus coordinator on the East Coast, so money is needed for mailing costs.
“Scott Yoder of Pak Mail in Davis has generously offered to help with the packing and shipping, but additional donations are needed to help with the high costs of mailing these much-needed blankets for warmth and security to needy children on cold winter nights,” a news release said.
For information about donating or dropping off blankets or donations, contact Diane McGee, chapter coordinator for Project Linus of Yolo County, at [email protected] or 530-753-3436.
