Last Month To Donate to Rosewood AKTION Club Blanket Drive

Donations Benefit Community Children

With the turning of the calendar, the Rosewood Miracle Workers AKTION Club enters its final month of conducting a blanket drive that goes to helping area children in need. The drive began in mid-January and will conclude at the end of March.

Until that time, Rosewood Miracle Workers are busily accepting new blankets, quilts, and homemade blankets. They are also accepting monetary donations, which are being used to purchase additional blankets.

All donated blankets and monetary donations can be delivered during regular business hours to one of two locations in downtown Great Bend: Rosewood Furniture Gallery, 1607 Main; or Rosewood Bargain Barn, 1215 Main.

Once the drive is completed, Rosewood AKTION Club members will deliver donations to two area agencies: Family Crisis Center, and the Barton County Health Department.

“We’ve had a good turn-out so far with donations, but it’s important for us to finish on a strong note.” explained Rosewood AKTION Club sponsor Frankie Pelster. “From previous years of helping both of these local agencies, I know they will use every donated blanket we can provide to them. I also know that the community support we receive means a great deal to Rosewood AKTION Club members as well as to representatives at Family Crisis Center at the Barton County Health Department. Thank you to everyone who has donated to our cause, so far.”

Rosewood AKTION Club is an affiliate of the national Kiwanis organization that promotes service in action for people with developmental disabilities. The area club allows Rosewood members to be actively involved in the community and to positively impact the lives of others.
