Project Linus is a national organization that provides homemade blankets to children who are seriously ill or traumatized.  The local chapter distributes the blankets to area hospitals and shelters.  The organization relies on volunteers to stitch a variety of different patterns.

Woodrow Wilson Middle School students are putting their personal touch to the blankets.  In addition to learning how to stitch, students are giving back to their community.  That's why we are calling this project Woodrow's Warmth.
