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.

Thank You!

We had a wonderful time on February 25th at our annual Project Linus Make a Blanket Day. Many thanks go to Marbles Museum at Exploris who hosted us as we made an astounding 285 blankets!!!! Deanna Winick did a terrific job of coordinating everything. We had fun as we chatted, knit, crocheted, quilted, “fleeced”, folded and bagged all of those wonderful blankets. We will be able to bring warmth and comfort to hundreds of children because of all of your efforts, talent and kindness. Thank you to everyone!
