The mission of Project Linus is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.” Through the ministry of the Women of Grace chapter of the Daughters of the King, Grace Episcopal Church of New Market is a drop-off site for these blankets. There are several ways you can participate in this loving ministry:
- Drop off a hand-made, child-friendly blanket in the white basket in the Grace Church entryway.
Tuesday thru Thursday: 9am-12pm
