Other Ways to Help:
Project Linus is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations to El Paso Project Linus are tax-deductible, and receipts are available upon request.
All donations and monies are used solely for Project Linus expenses.
Cash and check donations are sent by our chapter to the Project Linus National Headquarters, where funds are saved in the El Paso Chapter account. Funds are used as the local Chapter's needs arise to purchase fabric, batting, yarn, labels, etc. Twenty percent of cash or check donations are kept by headquarters to defray their costs of mailings, accounting fees, etc.
