The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 45,000 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.

Providing Security Through Blankets

Another note from an appreciative mother...
I just wanted to thank you & your workers who donated, sewed and handcrafted  the "provide security thru blankets"!  My daughter went to North Wake Hospital located on Falls of Neuse Road on Tuesday Morning and mentioned she was cold and they provided her with the most beautiful blanket I've ever seen and it made her feel so much better just knowing that other people care when you are sick.  She had a very serious sinus infection and lung congestion which with meds and great nurses and doctors care - she is on the way to recovery but most of all the beautiful blanket that was given to her at her lowest point of illness.

Please pass the on and also if you would send the address where your chapter is so we can make a donation so someone else also can receive just a wonderful gesture of love!!
See the "Donate to Project Linus" page here on our blog to find out how you can help Project Linus provide warmth, security, and comfort to children.
