The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 45,000 blankets have been delivered to many local groups and agencies that help seriously ill or traumatized children who need a HUG from a blanket including: Wake Med Hospitals, Rex Hospital, Duke Hospital NICU, Safe Space (for children of abused women receiving support), Hospice (for their Reflections program for grieving children and teens), Make a Wish Foundation, the children at Salvation Army, Children's Flight of Hope, and Wake County Social Services.

More hurricane help
Our new Johnston County coordinators, Angel and Hailey, delivered 60 blankets of your blankets to people dealing with the effects of Hurricane Florence in Hampstead, NC. These folks have really been hit hard, so Angel was sensitive and did not take photos. Here is Hailey on their way to deliver your blankets.

Hurricane Florence Relief Update
Here are the blankets that we have sent so far for children affected by Hurricane Florence:

100 blankets went to evacuees in the Maxwell Center
in Goldsboro, NC.
40 blankets were delivered to Wilmington/ New Hanover
county foster care center.
50 blankets went with a Swift Creek Middle School
teacher to Atkinson, NC's Hurricane relief program.
70 blankets went to Hurricane Florence distribution
center in Lumberton NC.
33 blankets were dropped off by Girl Scout troop #2016
from Wilson Mills along with a load of donations to
Carteret County's relief program for evacuees of
Wilmington and Atlantic Beach.

Countless thanks go to Angel and Hailey, the new
Johnston County coordinators, for delivering all of these
blankets. If YOU know of a way to get blankets to
children in need, please contact me and
we’ll work on it together.

Blanketeers are BUSY!
We have been busy delivering your blankets to a variety of places to help evacuees from Hurricane Florence. The trickiest part has been reaching the individuals, but we've done it and are still working on it. I'll update soon as to where your blankets are going to help children on our coast affected by the hurricane.
In the meantime, you all have really gone above and beyond in helping provide tag blankets for Haiti. They asked for as many as we could provide for children who did not receive much loving touch, and you responded with 1361 blankets!





And, just to top it off, you gave 120 blankets to seriously ill children at Camp Victory Junction.
