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.

Another Thank-You

Often we think that Project Linus only provides blankets to children who are sick.  While a good number of blankets are delivered to hospitals and treatment centers, many also go to organizations that help children cope with stressful situations in their lives.
Dear Susie,
     We received a generous donation of blankets from your chapter of Project Linus. Those blankets are going to children of deployed soldiers and I am certain they will provide comfort and warmth as they await their parent’s return. Thank you and all of your volunteers for your time and generous spirit.
