Community Bands to Support Aurora Shooting Victims, Friends & Families!

Project Linus will be sponsoring a community bonding, Blanket Making Blitz tomorrow (Sunday, July 22) from 1-4pm in Parker and Littleton. This response to Friday’s tragedy is two fold- to provide comfort to those directly traumatized by the shooting and the second is to bring the Denver community together with a unified goal. 
Founder Karen Loucks Rinedollar said, “We learned during the Columbine crisis how vitally important it is to the healing process for people to feel they are making a difference. The lesson that we learned back in 1999 is coming back to assist with this latest round of violence that has the Denver community in a current state of stunned shock.” Project Linus was able to deliver over 1600 blankets to the student of Columbine.
The two locations tomorrow are The Parker Library and 5604 S. Lee Street (near Kipling and Bowles) in Littleton. Participants are asked to bring polar fleece and sharp sewing sheers (paper scissors are too blunt for the fleece). A public Facebook invite has more details at!/events/151969914940068/
The organization was founded in Parker in 1995 to provide handmade security blankets to seriously ill and traumatized children made by the community. Since that time, 370 chapters of Project Linus have formed nationwide and over 4.2 million blankets have been delivered to children in need of comfort worldwide. Now you can be part of the solution.
