Recently, children from Queen of Angels Catholic School visited St. George Village to help make blankets for the Linus Project, a national nonprofit organization that provides homemade blankets to children in need.
The children, 56 in all, came in groups on November 5, 6, 12 and 13. A dozen SGV residents, along with several of the mothers of the children, made a total of 68 blankets. After making the blankets, the children took them to the chapel at SGV, where a priest blessed both children and blankets. Then, everyone enjoyed a reception with refreshments.
The blankets will be distributed to various charities, including the Ronald McDonald House, North Fulton Community Charities, and several community shelters for women and children. This is the seventh year that St. George Village and Queen of Angels have participated together in the Linus Project.
