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.

Temple Beth Or Mitzvah Day Project

On October 27th, Temple Beth Or held their annual Mitzvah Day Project. Led by Aleece Hiller, this dedicated group of parents and their children made 16 beautiful fleece blankets! The children designed special cards that were attached to each blanket.

Temple Beth Or Annual Mitzvah Day (a Mitzvah is a good deed) helps out over 40 charity organizations every year.  We are thankful they chose Project Linus!
