The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 39,000 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, Interact (for children of abused women receiving support), Hospice (for their Reflections program for grieving children and teens), Make a Wish Foundation, The Women's Center, Open Door Clinic, Children's Flight of Hope, and The Raleigh Rescue Mission.

The Cary Blanketeers celebrated their 5th birthday on Wednesday, June 3rd with a luncheon at Hope Community Church. The theme was “A Day at the Beach” and members were challenged to make a special beach blanket for donation to Project Linus. In five years, this amazing group of ladies has donated more than 2100 blankets and new members are always welcome.
