Meet Chicago Northwest, Chicago Northwest hotels and professional meeting professionals recently teamed up to partner with Project Linus to create hand-made blankets for children in need at an event hosted by the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg on Thursday, November 15, 2018.
For three hours a ballroom at the hotel was filled with “blanketeers”, volunteer blanket makers. Using single-ply fleece the volunteers measured cut and tied 30 fleece blankets. The blankets were then donated to Project Linus North and Central Chicagoland. Project Linus will in turn give the blankets to area children hospitals and facilities.
“It’s so heartwarming to see our customers and hotel partners take time out of their day to co-operate on this community project” remarked Dave Parulo, President of Meet Chicago Northwest.
