Again this winter season, 2012-2013, the Big Tree Quilt Club of Big Tree RV Park in Arcadia have created dozens of quilts that will be given to Project Linus.
Project Linus is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to “Providing Security Through Blankets,” for ill or traumatized children and teens. Inspired by a picture of a three-year-old cancer patient holding her security blanket, Project Linus was begun in 1995 by Karen Loucks. Nationally, Project Linus has donated more than 4,463,213 handmade blankets to help comfort children in need in hospitals, shelters, and hospices. Project Linus has 368 chapters in the United States. Project Linus was named after the adorable security blanket toting character from the Peanuts comic strip.
