Tsunami survivors in southeast Asia will be the next recipients of handmade blankets from the North Iowa/Southern Minnesota Chapter of Project Linus. Chapter Coordinator Deb Wolf of Osage says the group has given away thousands of blankets in less than ten years. Project Linus is a national volunteer organization that gives out homemade blankets to children with serious or life-threatening diseases, children who have been involved in a trauma situation or children who have lost a loved one. Wolf says they had a workday in Osage earlier this month and another one is coming up this Saturday. They had around a dozen volunteers show up on the 12th and they have another workday scheduled for February 26th in Waukon. Wolf says they are always looking for volunteers to help make blankets. If you don’t think making blankets is your thing, Wolf says you can still help out by donating materials they need.No experience is necessary to volunteer.
