An Act of Kindness Linus Blankets donated to Asheville Police Department

Buncombe County -- Buncombe County Sheriff's Office Posted on Facebook April 6, 2021 :

A huge thank you to Addie Hoffman for donating a bunch of hand-sewn blankets to Sgt. Jonathan Johnson of the Buncombe County Sheriff's Office today.

These blankets will go to our Patrol Deputies to be provided as needed to young people or anyone who needs comfort while
in distress.

Addie works with Project Linus to make these blankets -  https://www.projectlinus.org

AN INTRODUCTION
Project Linus National Headquarters is located in Belton, Missouri. National President Patty Gregory and Vice President Mary Balagna direct and orchestrate the activities of Project Linus chapters located across the United States. Patty has been involved with the organization in the Kansas City area since April 2000 and Mary in Central Illinois since late 1998, as chapter coordinators and now as directors and officers. Mary also maintains a very busy chapter, donating an average of 350 blankets every month to local children. With chapters in all 50 states, Project Linus continues to grow. Blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug.
