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.

Thank you everyone for your generous and quick response to the need for blankets for Camp Hanes. That need is met and the blankets have been delivered. We will still be collecting blankets for Camp Weaver and Victory Junction camp as well as our regular agencies that help children:  Rex, Wake Med and Duke hospitals, Interact (for the children of abused women who are fleeing the abusive situation), Hospice (for their grief group that helps kids who have lost a parent or sibling), Make a Wish Foundation and TAPS, camps for the children of fallen, injured and deployed military personnel from Fort Bragg, as well as the newborns there. Thank you all!
