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.

Comfort For Kids--From Kids

The sixth graders at Wakefield Middle School chose Project Linus for their service project again this year.  They not only made fleece blankets, but they also made cards to attach to the blankets.  These special notes offer comfort and smiles to the children who receive them.
