Newborns In Need

Newborns In Need Chapters serve their own communities by contacting local agencies, hospitals and shelters and provide items wherever needed. Volunteers meet monthly to cut, sew, knit, crochet, pack and organize these care items throughout their geographic area. Made up of hand-made and store bought items, these donations are delivered each month to waiting recipients.

Cancer Turbans

This information comes from the January, 2012, Guideposts magazine. A group of women called The Turban Ladies, began making turbans for cancer patients. The link below will take you to the information needed to make these pieces.


Project Linus!

Project Linus National Headquarters is located in Bloomington, Illinois. National President Carol Babbitt and Vice President Mary Balagna direct and orchestrate the activities of Project Linus chapters located across the United States. Both have been involved with the organization since late 1998, as chapter coordinators and now as directors and officers. They also maintain a very busy Central Illinois chapter, donating an average of 350 blankets every month to local children. With chapters in all 50 states, Project Linus continues to grow. Blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug.
