The warm embrace of a cozy blanket is sure to brighten anyone’s day. Meet donor Judi Pedder, a local artist and ongoing supporter of the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation. For many years, Judi was a volunteer for Project Linus - a non-profit organization with a mission to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or in need of comfort through the gift of a new, handmade blanket. Although this program no longer operates in the Comox Valley, Judi has continued their tradition. She recently dropped off 17 beautiful, hand-knit blankets made with love, to the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation.
