Linus

About The Project:

Project Linus is a nationwide organization whose goal is to bring love, comfort, and a sense of security to people in need.

Mrs. McFadden's 8th grade resource class is participating in the Linus Project. We are crocheting blankets and giving them to the retirement home.

The Linus Project is a very altruistic, selfless, and careing activity that everyone should contribute to.
