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.

Blankets needed for for 8-15 year olds
We are currently collecting 110 blankets for Camp Corral for July 26 in Columbia, NC. This is a special camp for children of injured or fallen military personnel. They will spend the week being outdoors and getting a special hug from a Project Linus blanket.
