TheCrew and the Crafting and Knitting Club partnered on Wednesday to work on a service project for Project Linus, a non-profit that provides children-in-need with homemade blankets.

This is organizations’ second year working together to make the blankets. The blankets were made for children in Tarrant County hospitals, shelters and other places where children are in need of them.

President of the Crafting and Knitting Club, Sarah Jennings, said the idea for the service project came from one of the officers of the organization. They wanted to use their crafting skills to help the community. Along with the homemade blankets, the group also makes cards for the kids.

The groups planned the event during the holiday season to make sure all the kids feel loved, especially during the holidays, said Sophie Goforth, mentor of TheCrew.

“And a blanket and a card is a great way to do that,” Goforth said.

The service project not only helps kids in Tarrant County, but also helps the Crafting and Knitting Club uphold their mission statement, Jennings said. 

“It benefits our organization because it gets people together doing craft which is the goal of the mission statement of our organization to bring people together and build that community and to also bring service to our community as well,” said Jennings.
