2016 Flint Festival of Quilts:  

Community Opportunity to Support the National Organization Project Linus right here at Home by Donating Quilts and Afghans for Children in Crisis

 

*Donate a Quilt or Afghan to Project Linus for Children in Crisis. 

Each quilt site throughout the festival is ready to receive your donation of tangible love for children who need to know Someone Cares. All donations of afgahans and quilts that fit the requirements of Project Linus will be donated a chapter of the national organization. Any donations that do not fit their specific requirements will be donated to one of several area organizations that support people in need. A small act of kindness goes along way…
