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!

Thank you all so much for your support of Project Linus and our Make a Blanket Day. It was a beautiful, snowy day. We loved the new bright room at Exploris, and we produced 133 blankets for children in Wake County. Many thanks go to Deanna Winick for all of her hard work, as well as numerous other volunteers.
Our chapter has now delivered well over 25,000 blankets to seriously ill or traumatized children. That could never have happened without you. You have brought love, comfort and warmth to so many children.
We have a new Cary drop site. It is the Cary Quilting Company (previously Etc. Crafts) at 226 East Chatham St.
Thank you all,
Susie Holmes
Coordinator, Project Linus Wake County
