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.

Announcing the Cary Blanketeers!

Make new friends and make blankets for Project Linus!  Mark your calendar for June 2, when a new blanket-making group in Cary will meet for the first time at the A C Moore craft store in Crossroads Mall.  Bring your own project to knit, crochet, or quilt. Experienced crafters will mentor beginners and everyone is welcome.

More information about the Cary Blanketeers will be posted here in the coming weeks.  You can also download this flyer or contact Pam Wilson, the group's coordinator.
