Project Linus Humboldt is fortunate to have community supporters. One of those supporters, Coast Central Credit Union, has provided an annual donation to our chapter which has helped us make over 1,400 blankets since May 2018.
In this new year, CCCU employees participated in a fundraiser for us. They designate various non-profits and have a Friday each month where employees can wear jeans if they donate $5.00 to the designated non-profit for that month.
Yesterday, I was informed that $600.00 was generated last Friday for Project Linus Humboldt by CCCU employees with the additional support from CCCU! That is a lot of jeans and a lot of support.
Our Blanketeers get great satisfaction from creating new, homemade blankets for children in our community. It is also quite satisfying to know that we have community support for our efforts as well. The donated funds go toward various blanket materials like fabric, yarn, thread and batting which are turned into wonderful “blanket hugs” for kids who need one.
As the Chapter Coordinator it is my responsibility to fund raise a minimum of $500. annually for our chapter. CCCU’s generous donation has helped me to reach that goal for the year. I plan to do more fund raising, but the pressure is off and that certainly is a good feeling.
So, CCCU employees, I thank you and all of our Blanketeers thank you for starting off this new year with a donation that makes us smile!
