The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 40,000 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.

Many, many thanks to everyone who helped with our Make a Blanket Day. It was a tremendous success. We made 295 blankets, some of which have already been delivered to Wake Med. Special thanks go to Deanna Winick and Temple Beth Or; it was a fantastic day in a beautiful space. Thanks to everyone!
