Do You like to knit, crochet or quilt, or know someone who does? By combining your time, talent, and your very own “home made blanket”, you can make a difference in the life of a child. Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Project Linus have teamed up to provide blankets to children who have experienced a recent trauma. From the sudden death of a parent to displacement from a fire, the District Attorney’s Office encounters children each week who would benefit from the comfort of a blanket. Research has shown that the softness and warmth of a blanket can help children cope with distress. To learn more about the need for blankets and how you can help support this partnership, stop by the Senior Center to visit with District Attorney Marian Ryan and representatives of Project Linus on Wednesday, April 19 at 10:00 PM.
