Our deepest gratitude and appreciation to the Shasta Lily Quilt Guild, who donated 80 quilts to CASA yesterday to be distributed to foster children throughout Siskiyou County! Each blanket is paired with a stuffed animal and poem, giving our foster children warm, cuddly and tangible items to carry with them as they navigate the juvenile dependency system. Thank you for spreading the love of Project Linus to our local foster kids!
My heart was thinking of you,
My hands knew what to do.
This blanket grew out of the love
I want to share with you
I hope it will keep you warm,
And befriend you late at night.
I hope you'll come to love it
And be comforted by its sight.
Let this blanket wrap you in friendship,
And cover you in love.
Because this blanket was thinking of you
Long before it was even done.
