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 generosity of our blanketeers made it possible for our chapter to provide 440 blankets to Victory Junction Camp this summer. The camp is for children with serious medical conditions. Thank you all!
