The Wuzzlewubbies Program first began in 2017 when Blixt Locally Grown Teaching Artists learned that many students we worked alongside in Title One Schools were hoping to receive a blanket over winter break.
We realized at citizen artists that we had a great opportunity to connect to our community and collaborate with Lincoln Public Schools to get warm blankets to students and their families.
In our first year, and with the help of our generous donors, we were able to deliver nearly 800 blankets to local schools where we also collaborate as teaching artists. The schools determine how and when to distribute the "Wuzzlewubbies" (our nickname for the blankets) and make sure that they go directly from volunteers' hands to students.
Winter weather has arrived. We are currently accepting new or homemade blankets, twin-sized or larger, to be distributed in our local schools in February 2020. For more information please contact Blixt Locally Grown President Petra Wahlqvist here.
