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.

Blanket and Bear Breakfast

Jennifer Dawson recently held her fifth fall fundraiser and charity drive.  It took the form of a Blanket and Bear Breakfast.  There was also a Bring & Buy Sale and Raffle to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Durham and the Make a Wish Foundation.  $850 was raised for these two organizations.  The bears were donated to the Raleigh Police Dept and The Bayleaf Fire Dept.  75 blankets were donated to Project Linus, 30 to Interact and 25 to the Raleigh Rescue Mission.  More photos

Thank you Jennifer!
