Brazos Valley Project Linus

Brazos Valley Project Linus


The Project Linus mission is to provide handmade blankets to children aged 0-18 in the United States who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need.  There are chapters in every state with Texas having approximately 17 chapters. The national website is https://projectlinus.org 

Our chapter, Brazos Valley, covers the Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Madison, Milam, Robertson, Waller and Washington counties. Our blankets are distributed locally to organizations that support children. From time-to-time blankets may be shipped to other areas in the United States that may have an immediate extraordinary need. Some of the local organizations we distribute our blankets to are: Ronald McDonald House, Hope Pregnancy Center, Phoebes Home, Hope Locker - Bryan ISD, Casa (Bryan and Brenham when requested) and Chrissy’ Closet – College Station ISD (new).  

Our chapter makes machine quilted and knitted or crocheted blankets. Blankets are hand-made from new fabric or yarn by local volunteers. Blankets are dropped off at Sew Vac City in College Station, JoAnn’s Fabric in Bryan or at our monthly meetings at Sew Vac City.  Our chapter meets at 10AM on the 3rd Tuesday each month at Sew Vac City. Attending the meetings is not a requirement to be a member. You do not have to be a member to donate to the Brazos Valley chapter. 

You can make a real difference in so many ways by donating monetarily to Project Linus. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Monies are used for purchasing blanket supplies. Our chapter also welcomes donated materials to make blankets such as quilt batting, cotton fabric, or acrylic or cotton yarn. We also welcome information on additional organizations that we could provide blankets to for children in need.
