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.

Mark Your Calendar - November 8

Dear Project Linus Volunteers,
Quail Ridge Books is hosting Jennifer Chiaverini, author of the Elm Creek Quilt series on Thursday, Nov. 8th at 7:30 PM. Mark your calendars to join us. I was fortunate to be able to read an advance copy of her latest book, The Giving Quilt, and it is just as engaging and inspiring as the others in the series. The Giving Quilt highlights giving to Project Linus as it asks the question, “Why do you give?” Jennifer herself makes blankets for Project Linus, and reminds us all of the joy of giving.
Project Linus will have a table there and be available to answer any questions. I do hope that you can join us to listen to this wonderful author and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow Project Linus blanketeers!
Susie Holmes
Coordinator, Project Linus Wake County
