The Santa Clarita Valley chapter of Project Linus is hosting its semi-annual Make-A-Blanket Day on Saturday, March 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the College of the Canyons East Gym. 

The nonprofit organization specializes in making and delivering handmade blankets throughout Santa Clarita to comfort children who are ill. Participants are asked to bring either their own blizzard or anti-pill fleece. 

Anyone who can’t attend but would like to participate can drop off blankets to the event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

According to the Project Linus website, the measurements for the fleece blankets should be as follows: “A piece of fleece 54 inches x 45 inches (a yard and a half off of the bolt).” 

Anyone who would like to learn how to make tied-fleece-edge blankets can find instructions at the Project Linus website, scvprojectlinus.org

All participants are asked to sign up and receive instructions on service hours participants can earn, as well as the amount of fleece to bring. 

Interested participants may sign up for the event at forms.gle/tthSvbfz5cnTQhiC8
