Since they started in 2017, the two have had tremendous success by donating over 3,000 blankets to sick and traumatized children across the region. Project Linus would not be possible without the volunteer organizations that purchase all the materials needed to make the blankets. They then provide instructions and blankets to make the templates to volunteers to complete. The finished blankets get distributed to those in need. Some of those places include shelters and hospitals in the area.
Gorfinkel and some of her volunteers gave a blanket tutorial on Fox 5 Pay it Forward. The lovely blankets take about a half hour to make and are great quality. Joel Bassam surprised them live on air by donating 144 yards of fleece on behalf of Easterns Automotive Group. This will them make plenty of blankets to kick off 2020.
