Project Linus Makes an Offer: Buy a Cookbook; Comfort a Child

If you have an appetite for good food, and a desire for helping worthy causes, the Sandoval County Chapter of Project Linus has a deal for you.

For $15.00, you can purchase a cookbook with more than 300 recipes submitted by the same people who make blankets to comfort children in times of crisis. Proceeds from the sales of the “Quilters Cookbook” will be used to purchase materials for making more of those blankets.

Project Linus is a national non-profit organization of volunteers who work with police and fire departments, hospitals and other agencies to provide blankets for children to cling to when they suffer traumatic experiences, such as a serious illness, the death of a loved one or finding their family homeless. The Project Linus volunteers make all the blankets themselves. The Sandoval County distributes hundreds of blankets across five Northern New Mexico counties (Sandoval, Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, San Miguel and Los Alamos) each year.

“Raising funds to support the Sandoval County Chapter is essential to continue our work,” an introduction to the Quilters Cookbook states.

Purchasing a cookbook will provide lifetime access to delicious and creative recipes for dishes ranging from appetizers and beverages to deserts and other snacks. If you don’t need a cookbook, you can still support Project Linus by donating fabric, yarn, cash or gift cards.

To find out how to help this great cause contact Denise Montoya, executive administrator of the Sandoval County Sandoval County Senior Program, at 505-867-7547 or Jennifer Stivers at 505-867-7535.
