Support for Military Families

In addition to the numerous organizations in East Tennessee, we also proudly provide blankets for our military families:

Snowball Express  – Snowball Express remembers those fallen heroes who will never return, and honors the supreme sacrifice their families have made. Snowball Express serves the children who will never be reunited with their mom or dad. Snowball Express started in early 2006 with a simple idea: Provide hope and new memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11.  We are honored to provide blankets for Snowball Express.  Click here to view photos of Snowball Express events.  Snowball Express is a part of the Gary Sinise Foundation.

Hugs for Heroes  Hugs for Heroes is a Project Linus initiative that not only provides a blanket to children that have a loved one serving overseas, but also provides a small “pocket” blanket for the family to send to the loved one/soldier. That way the child and the deployed soldier can “share” the blanket and the warm hug it provides. Click here for more information, photos and a link to the pattern.

Project Linus of East TN also ensures the children of local military personnel killed in service to our country receive a blanket.
