WILMINGTON, MA — Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan will be visiting the Wilmington Senior Center (15 School Street) this Thursday, December 7 at 11am.
She will speak to Wilmington seniors, including the Senior Center’s Knitting/Crocheting group, about Project Linus.
Project Linus is a 100% volunteer organization dedicated to creating and delivering new handmade blankets to any child who may be in need of some extra comforting. Blankets can be knitted, crocheted, quilted or hand-tied by volunteers of all ages and abilities and are delivered to children in hospitals throughout the world or to any child in need of consolation.
Earlier this year, the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office announced a partnership with Project Linus. Blankets are now being provided to Middlesex County Chiefs of Police and other first-responders across the County to distribute when children have experienced trauma, such as witnessing a violent crime, loss of a parent or sibling or displacement from their home.
After her address to the seniors, Ryan will deliver blankets — some made by Wilmington seniors — to the Wilmington Police Department and Wilmington Fire Department.
