OCO Super Saturdays

Super Saturdays are one-time projects offered twice per semester, typically on Saturday morning.

Project Linus

We are at it again!  Thanks to the generosity of so many individuals and organizations we raised $1,775 last spring to purchase fleece and greatly surpassed our original goal of making 50 blankets.  To date 147 blankets have been made, and we have fleece remaining.  Mark your calendar now to join us for blanket-making on September 20th  (time TBA)!  No experience necessary.  Check back in September for registration.  Please contact Julie Bishop at jbishop@bw.edu if you have questions in the meantime.

Project Linus' mission is to "provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly made by volunteer 'blanketeers.' " 

A big thank you to our Project Linus donors!
