Welcome to the home page of the New River Valley (Virginia) Chapter!
The next NRV Project Linus Blanket Day is June 8, 2013 at
Grove United Methodist Church, Radford, VA from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
A message from Penny Sweet, NRV Project Linus Coordinator,
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and is looking forward to a beautiful Spring! I wanted to share several bits of information with you and remind you to
put our summer Blanket Day on your calendar – Saturday, June 8th!
BB&T bank in Radford is working on a wonderful fundraiser to benefit our Project Linus chapter! They are raising money to purchase fleece for blankets and
the employees will make some blankets to donate. They will donate any extra fleece to our chapter and also hope to attend the June Blanket Day. I really
appreciate all that they are doing for us and wanted to share the good news.
Harry the Jeweler in Radford has also come on board as a Project Linus supporter! He is going to have a donation jar on his counter to collect donations for
our chapter and also will spread the word to his customers about Project Linus. I really appreciate him being so supportive of our chapter! Harry also will
give free watch batteries to all Armed Forces Veterans and also to nursing home patients. Feel free to share that information to anyone you know who could
benefit. Hope to see each of you at the June 8th Blanket Day! Thank you for all you do for Project Linus!
DONATIONS REQUESTED: Project Linus will always accept donations of appropriate material, yarn, and batting. Also, cash donations are greatly
appreciated. All of the material is purchased or donated. Donations may be made to honor someone's birthday, anniversary, holidays, etc. If you do
this, an acknowledgment of the donation will be sent at your request. Please contact Penny Sweet for more information.
