The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 33,000 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.

We are very excited to announce that Great Yarns is a new drop site for Project Linus. Come by and browse some lovely yarn when you drop off your blankets. Great Yarns is located on Wade Avenue and Ridge Road next to Whole Foods at Ridgewood Shopping Center.

Six years and 3100 blankets! The Cary Blanketeers recently celebrated their birthday at the Super Asian Buffet. The theme of the party was “Blanket the World” and members were challenged to make a special international blanket. China, England, Holland, South Africa and Japan were just a few of the countries represented. More photos can be found on the group’s Facebook page. Want to join them?

Many thanks to these fantastic young people,  Girl Scout Troop 583, Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes. They made blankets for Project Linus, and included sweet notes on them. Thank you!

Thank you everyone for your generous and quick response to the need for blankets for Camp Hanes. That need is met and the blankets have been delivered. We will still be collecting blankets for Camp Weaver and Victory Junction camp http://victoryjunction.org/ as well as our regular agencies that help children:  Rex, Wake Med and Duke hospitals, Interact (for the children of abused women who are fleeing the abusive situation), Hospice (for their grief group that helps kids who have lost a parent or sibling), Make a Wish Foundation and TAPS, camps for the children of fallen, injured and deployed military personnel from Fort Bragg, as well as the newborns there. Thank you all!

Camp Corral blankets needed
Just as an FYI, we are collecting blankets for Camp Corral this summer. Camp Corral is a free summer camp for children of military service members, with priority given to children of wounded, disabled or fallen military service members
Campers are ages 8-15, so larger sizes are needed and all blankets are welcomed.
Project Linus will provide 268 blankets to Camp Hanes in King, NC by June 19, and 165 blankets to Camp Weaver in Greensboro on August 7.

We will need volunteers to deliver blankets to Camp Weaver on August 7, as they do not have space to store blankets. If you are interested in helping deliver and hand out blankets at either camp, please contact me using the link to the lower right under Contacts.
Thanks,
Susie
