The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 40,000 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.

Many thanks to the Carolina Princess Program who made over 500 blankets and the staff at NC State who helped label them. And here's a happy recipient of a Project Linus blanket to brighten your day.
