Blanket Chronicles

Soroptimist International of Humboldt Bay Continue Their Support

On May 19th, 2024 our Project Linus Chapter received a grant award from Soroptimist International of Humboldt Bay (SIHB) for $500.00 which was what we had requested in our 2024 grant application. SIHB has been an annual funding supporter since 2020.  The funds they donate are spent on blanket making supplies which helps our chapter to continue donating new, handmade blankets to agencies in our community working with children in need of a blanket hug.

The award letter stated that SIHB had received “an unprecedented amount of grant requests this year” so we are quite pleased to be granted this award.  In addition to the award, we our grateful for the personal support SIHB gives us.  A Soroptimist attended one of our meetings at the end of last year and shared their positive feedback with chapter volunteers for the blanket work we do.

SIHB works to support women and girls navigating life’s challenges by helping them to realize their potential to achieve.  Many mothers have written us notes of thanks for the soft and comforting blanket their child has received.  These mothers and their children are navigating life’s challenges and we are grateful for the support we receive from SIHB to provide some blanket comfort.
