Women Stitch Blankets for Charity

OLD TOWN - A local group of women gathered in Old Town Saturday to make homemade blankets for children.

Its all a part of project Linus, a nation-wide non profit organization that has provided over 4-million blankets worldwide.

from quilts, to afghans, and fleece blankets, Saturday's goal was to create 100 of the warm and cozy handmade gifts, and provide them to children in hospitals, schools, and others in need.

Project Linus is run completely by volunteers.
