The blankets that the Pawling teens made back in December as part of Project Linus have made it to children in need! We got a letter from Putnam County Social Services, and the blankets that the Project Do Something Teens made have been handed out to children in homeless shelters, foster homes, and children being moved between homes. Thank you to all the teens who participated in this project. Follow the link below for upcoming Project Do Something Projects.
“Dear Pawling Youth Group:
I picked up several bags of blankets today from Project Linus to distribute here at Putnam County Social Services. I was told that many of the fleece blankets were made by you and I wanted to reach out and thank you. They were all so beautiful and the colors and patterns had such variety that they will well suit all of our kids. We have given them to our homeless kids that are living in temporary shelters and don’t have many belongings, to our foster kids that are living with other families temporarily, to our kids that are awaiting adoption and we also use them in our transport cars for kids that have to be driven from place to place sometimes late at night. A warm, cozy blanket really helps a child in a crisis situation to feel safe and helps them to know that other people really care about what happens to them. I thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to helping others in need.
