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.

Need for larger blankets
We will be delivering 110 larger blankets for children ages 8-15 to Camp Corral in Columbia, NC. They will be attending a camp for  children  of injured or fallen military service members. We need larger blankets for this group (equal numbers of boys and girls).
Camp Corral is a wonderful chance for kids to share amazing adventures through boating, swimming, hiking, archery and enjoying fresh air and nature.
If you would like to hand out blankets on July 26, please email Dolly Mercer at dmercer@goldencorral.net; she will need
to know ahead of time. 
This can also be used for service hours
for students.
