Project Linus of Yolo County, one of more than 375 chapters of the group nationwide, has committed to sending 200 blankets to children in Japan as well as children of U.S. families evacuating Japan following the recent earthquake and tsunami.
The group will collect blankets until April 22. They may be dropped off at Project Linus’ monthly meeting from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St., or at Diane McGee’s house in Davis. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or (530) 753-3436.
Monetary donations are needed to offset the shipping costs. Checks should be payable to Project Linus, with “shipping to Japan” written on the memo line. Contact McGee for an address.
In January 2010, Project Linus sent blankets to children in Haiti following the devastating earthquake there.
