Project Linus donates blankets to school district

This winter, nearly 400 Klamath County School District students will receive a “warm hug” in the form of a handmade blanket thanks to Project Linus.

Suzy Field and Susan Oates of Project Linus deliver bags of handmade blankets to the Klamath County School District.

Suzy Field and Susan Oates of Project Linus delivered bags full of the colorful blankets to the KCSD Central Office this week. Over the past decade, the local chapter has provided more than 12,000 blankets to community organizations who help youth. They refer to the blankets as “warm hugs.”

“We are so thankful to Project Linus for the donation of hundreds blankets and ‘warm hugs,’ ” she said. “We will be able to provide these blankets to students who need a bit of extra emotional support.”
