EL PASO, Texas–Several kids at Providence Children's Hospital were smiling from ear to ear after they received a handcrafted blanket as part of Project Linus.
For 20 years, Project Linus has been handcrafting blankets and delivering them to the children’s hospitals’ smallest patients to bring warmth and comfort to their day.
Each blanket is a one of a kind and specially designed with bright colors and fun fabrics.
Since its inception, El Paso Project Linus has handmade over 30,000 blankets and lovingly delivered them to the NICU babies and pediatric patients.
Blankets are hand crocheted, quilted or sewn to bring a smile to a little patient.
"There's a lot of love, and there is a labor of love to do something that is handmade, also I know a lot of our ladies pray over them for the child that receives it, hopefully it can bring them peace from the traumatic time in their life," said Sarah Ramirez, Project Linus.
