The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 37,000 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, Interact (for children of abused women receiving support), Hospice (for their Reflections program for grieving children and teens), Make a Wish Foundation, The Women's Center, Open Door Clinic, Children's Flight of Hope, and The Raleigh Rescue Mission.

One hundred and eighty of your blankets were just delivered to Victory Junction Camp. This camp is a special place for children with serious medical conditions. Their website is:  https://victoryjunction.org/
The Victory Junction Camp sends you their thanks:

Thank you again for all the wonderful blankets.  Here are a couple of photos of some campers with their blankets.  We appreciate every single blanket we get and each one goes home with a camper.

Many, many thanks to all of you
