On June 7, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital hosted its Annual Project Linus Tea. This tea is held to thank all volunteers who contribute their time and talent to creating handmade blankets and quilts for young patients.
The Project Linus program has been in place for over than a decade in the Volunteer Services Department at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Last year, volunteers sewed, knitted and crocheted more than 800 blankets and quilts. These beautiful items were then given to all pediatric patients at the hospital, including the pediatric intensive care unit and neonatal intensive care unit.
“It’s kind of a passion for these women to make a blanket, finish it, and know that it’s going to a good cause for all the children in the hospital,” says Iris Scott, Project Linus Coordinator for Santa Barbara County and a volunteer for Cottage.
