At Project Linus, a non-profit organization, we make and provide homemade blankets to children in need. Our blankets are lovingly made by adults and children from all walks of life.

Blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug.

The blankets are given to children through many organizations.  Some of the organizations that have distributed our blankets to children in need are:

  • Brandon Regional Hospital Pediatrics and NICU
  • AdventHealth Pediatrics
  • St. Joseph's Hospital South Pediatrics
  • Judge Espinoza for children who are in his courtroom with their parents
  • Guardian ad Litem
  • Children's Advocacy Care
  • LifeCare Women's Center
  • Foundation for Dreams
  • HPH Pediatric Hospice
  • A Kid's Place
  • Children's Protective Services
  • Caregiver's Helping Hand
  • Hillsborough County Family Drug Court
  • Shriner's Hospitals
  • St. Joseph's Hospital North Pediatrics
  • Trinity Hospital
  • Children's Home
  • TAPS (the military's Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors)
  • Camp Mariposa
  • WestCare GulfCoast
  • Pregnancy Care Center

If you know of a local organization serving children in need that would like to receive blankets, please contact us.

Project Linus receives many letters and thank you notes every year from children. Over and over they express how touched they are that a stranger would take the time to make something for them.  Purchased blankets are nice, but handmade blankets are from the heart.
