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.

Northern Wake Seniors Contribute to Project Linus

The Northern Wake Senior Center is the place for area seniors (55+) to meet and have fun.  Dorothy's craft class at the Center is a busy bunch, and they keep detailed records on their projects.  These nice ladies--and one gentleman!--contributed 204 blankets to Project Linus in 2011!

For more information about activities at the Center, located at 235 East Holding Avenue in Wake Forest, call 919-554-4111.
