Emmanuel’s Sunday School Christian Education Blanketing Making Session for Project Linus Brings Smil

Posted: Thursday, March 23, 2017

Eighteen children of all ages participated in making twenty blankets for Project Linus as part of Emmanuel’s Sunday School Christian Education program in a one hour blanket making session on March 12th. Women of Emmanuel sponsored the event and supplied the soft plush material for the project.

Marilyn Clark, head of Women of Emmanuel and Church Council Moderator, stated, “It was a fun day! The children were able to make beautiful blankets for a worthy cause. You could see how pleased and proud they were with the blankets they made. Their smiles said it all.”

Leslie Maltz Taylor, a representative from Project Linus, led the one hour blanket making session during Sunday school at Emmanuel. Emmanuel will donate the completed blankets to Project Linus, a non-profit organization that provides homemade blankets to children in need.

Emmanuel, founded in 1891, is celebrating its 125th Anniversary Year and maintains a tradition of community outreach. Emmanuel is located at 14 Hope Street, at the corner of Hope Street and East Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ. The building is ADA accessible and all are invited to attend.
