Project Linus Tucson was founded in May of 1999. We have shared 108,774 blanket hugs with children in need since we were founded. The Project Linus mission has two goals.
- Provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.”
- Provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.
Project Linus Tucson serves all of Pima County.
