Residents Make Fleece Blankets for Local Children

Residents at The Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens set a goal of making 100 fleece blankets for local children as part of Project Linus.

Project Linus is a national non-profit organization that operates hundreds of chapters throughout the United States. Its mission is to provide love, comfort and a sense of security to children who involved in a traumatic situation. The Central Valley-based chapter, which includes The Blanketeers of The Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens, distributes fleece blankets to rescue and relief centers, police departments and hospitals.

Residents, with help from our team members, tie the edges of the top and bottom pieces of fabric to make knots. They have fun with the project, while also giving back to the community.

Our Blanketeers meet on a weekly basis, rotating among assisted living and the memory care center. We are happy to give back to our community with Project Linus, and look forward to reaching our goal.
