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.

Our Wake County chapter of Project Linus is always delighted to share our love and blankets with the TAPS program. TAPS is the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors for the children of fallen soldiers from Fort Bragg, NC. We are so proud of the service of our soldiers and their families. We truly hope that they feel wrapped in love. 

Here is the note from Pat Weber, who oversees the Project Linus Sandhills Chapter:

I received some photos from The TAPS weekend.  Please share with your volunteers
the significance of their blankets to the children of fallen soldiers.  Thank you again for
the donation and the support.
