The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 42,000 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.

Camp Corral blankets needed
Just as an FYI, we are collecting blankets for Camp Corral this summer. Camp Corral is a free summer camp for children of military service members, with priority given to children of wounded, disabled or fallen military service members
Campers are ages 8-15, so larger sizes are needed and all blankets are welcomed.
Project Linus will provide 268 blankets to Camp Hanes in King, NC by June 19, and 165 blankets to Camp Weaver in Greensboro on August 7.

We will need volunteers to deliver blankets to Camp Weaver on August 7, as they do not have space to store blankets. If you are interested in helping deliver and hand out blankets at either camp, please contact me using the link to the lower right under Contacts.
