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.

A Thank-You Note from WakeMed

WakeMed North sees lots of kids in the Emergency Department...so we deliver lots of blankets to WakeMed North!  This thank-you note was received last week: 
We received a large delivery of blankets today at WakeMed North.  I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful gift.  We truly enjoy handing out such beautiful creations to our patients.  I have seen the eyes of a sick child or an elderly patient twinkle when receiving a blanket.

We have several quilters among us and also enjoy admiring your handiwork.  As a quilter myself I especially appreciate the love and hard work that goes into creating each blanket.

Thank you for all your effort.
Sincerely,
Melodie Goswick, RN BSN CEN
