The gift of ‘security’

the Inland Register

(From the Jan. 12, 2006 edition of the Inland Register)

Students from the third grade religious education class at St. Patrick Parish, Pasco, learned a lesson by hand-tying fleece blankets. In past years, blankets have been donated to the Guatemala missions and to local skilled nursing home patients. This year, blankets were shared with local children in need through the Tri-Cities chapter of Project Linus, a national, non-profit organization that provides “security blankets” for children facing a variety of life’s obstacles, including abuse, homelessness, cancer, or other illnesses. Linda Porter (pictured center) from the local chapter came to meet the children and accept the blankets for the program. (IR photo from Debbie Cox)
