Sam's Club and the Davenport Police Department gave CPRC $1,000 to spend on Christmas for some of our families. We can not thank them enough. To read the entire story from KWQC, please click below.
It’s Yours to Keep Forever
Linus has a blanket, that’s all his very own.
It comforts and sustains him when he’s feeling quite alone.
He knows that others love him for ‘twas made with special care,
And because it means so much to him, it’s carried everywhere!
You, too, can have a blanket that’s created just for you,
To comfort and support you when you’re feeling rather blue.
It’s yours to keep forever, so you may always know
That others out there love you and to you our wishes go.
Poem by Soni Uhler, Project Linus
The volunteers of Project Linus have donated over 300 blankets to the Children of CPRC. These blankets are lovingly made by the volunteers of the East Central Iowa Chapter of Project Linus and are handed out to any child who visits our Center.
We had one little boy who was so excited to get a blanket. His mother explained that he received his first Project Linus blanket in the hospital a few years ago and it had been lost. It meant the world to him to get a "replacement" blanket!
CPRC would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Project Linus!
