The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 42,000 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.

Knit-a-Thon a Success

We had a successful day at our Knit-a-Thon, with 10 blanketeers joining in the fun. We raised $500 for Project Linus from sponsors and $15 from the sale of goods.

Our thanks go to Karissa Brinkley for hosting this event, to Coats and Clark for the donation of yarn, to Glover Printing for printing posters and handouts and to the UPS store for duplicating.
