The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 40,000 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.

Camp Victory Junction Acknowledgement 

Each staff member was able to have a brick made on our Fan Walk here at camp.  I had a thank you brick made for the Project Linus Chapter of Wake County.  We just received the completed bricks and they were installed last week.  Attached is a photo of your group’s brick.  Thank you again for all your group does for our campers.  Each blanket is a small way they can take a little bit of camp home with them.  Your time, talents and contributions are greatly appreciated.

They hosted Community Heroes Day in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and invited us to participate. We loved being a part of such a special day. 
Many thanks to all who helped us make blankets, and special thanks to 
Deanna Winick for organizing us!
