The Linus Connection

The Linus Connection is a Central Texas non-profit organization whose mission is to make and deliver handmade security blankets that are for children in crisis situations in the Austin and Central Texas area. The blankets go to children in hospital emergency rooms, in crisis centers, foster care, battered women’s shelters, and to any child who is in need of a little extra security in their lives.

All of the blankets are handmade (quilted, knitted or crocheted) by volunteers in the community, either as a group or individually. Each blanket is given to a child in need of some extra security.

Since 1999, The Linus Connection has distributed over 33,600 blankets to children in need across Central Texas. Almost 3,000 of those blankets have been distributed in 2009 alone.

TLC will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary serving Central Texas in October with an annual challenge, food and visits from both sponsors and recipient facilities.
