Volunteer

 

Our chapter relies on volunteerism and donations. We need volunteers to:

  • Make blankets in their home ("Blanketeer")

  • Pick up, inspect and label donated blankets

  • Deliver blankets to local organizations and hospitals

  • Coordinate or participate in Make a Blanket Days

 

If you don't sew or don't have the time, that's okay, you can still help our non-profit organization. 

Consider buying these needed items:

  • Fleece in 1.5 yard pieces in kid friendly prints

  • Flannel to make NICU blankets for the preemies in our local hospital

    • ​Each NICU blanket requires 2 squares of flannel about 44-45" each

    • We donate 90 NICU blankets every month!

  • Unused child friendly cotton fabrics in lengths of 36" or greater
  • Cotton quilt batting such as low loft 'Warm & Natural'

    • 45" x 45" minimum

Donate

 

In Kind:

  • Gift cards to fabric stores

  • New equipment including 45" rotary cutters and blades or fabric shears

  • Stamps

  • Fabric - see below

 

Financial:

Monetary donations are welcome and always needed to help with our ongoing expenses such as:

  • Satin labels. Project Linus National requires that ​​each blanket donated to a child include a satin label, sewn on the back of the blanket, that identifies it as a Project Linus blanket

  • Mailing labels​​, office supplies, etc.​

 

As a local non-profit chapter of Project Linus National, 80% of our monetary donations stay with the Madison Chapter.

Note about donation acknowledgements: All donated blankets are logged, checked for quality and safety, and sorted by size. They are delivered once a month to recipient organizations to distribute. You may or may not receive a thank you due to available volunteer time, but please know that your donation is appreciated. If at any time you want to know your donation total for the current year, just email us and we will check the log and reply.

Donations can be dropped off at any of our donation locations.
