I want to thank Adrienne Harris for the story about our Solano County Chapter of Project Linus (Sept. 9 “Blankets abound for Solano’s Project Linus”). As you know, we were striving to reach a milestone of 5,000 blankets donated to our chapter.
We needed just 209 blankets to reach that goal. So many blankets came in at our meeting, that we couldn’t count them all. A few of our blanketeers met again to organize and ready the blankets to be distributed to local groups.
Happily I can share that we collected 426 blankets, so our total since January 2009 is now 5,217. Many thanks to all those in the community who have been a part of this success!
