The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 45,000 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.

In need of a boost? Here's someone to bring you the holiday spirit. 
Meet Polly, a ten year old young lady. She and her family annually make and sell items at the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot Run to support worthy causes. This year, Project Linus was lucky enough to be chosen as her recipient. They made all sorts of delicious treats, sold them at the race, and then gave Project Linus almost $200.00! Her hard work and generous spirit will lead to yards and yards of fleece and yarn being purchased to make more blankets like these. She truly is the spirit of the season, spreading hope and happiness.
