Students from Academy of the Canyons who are part of the Nonprofit Ventures class that run a nonprofit organization in Santa Clarita called Project Linus SCV / AV / Sylmar specializes in making and delivering handmade blankets across the valley. Our blankets are made to provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort, particularly for children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or hospitalized.
This year's "Make a Blanket Day" serves as a part of our mission by providing a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals in local communities while benefiting children in need. Our first event of the year will be hosted on at Golden Valley High School’s gym. It will begin at and end at Within this time frame, individuals are free to come and leave at anytime. For those who need it, this is also an opportunity to fulfill volunteer service hour requirements as they give back to the community. Students are encouraged to stay for a fun day of service. Food trucks will be provided for participants to purchase food, if desired.
