Rosewood AKTION Club Blanket Drive In Final Month

Special Delivery: Rosewood Miracle Workers AKTION Club members deliver their collections of blankets to Family Crisis Center during a previous blanket drive. This is the ninth consecutive year that Rosewood AKTION Club has conducted its community drive and delivered blankets to area organizations. The blankets are welcomed and needed by the area organizations that receive them each year.

Rosewood Miracle Workers AKTION Club is entering its last few weeks of conducting its blanket drive that goes to helping area children in need. AKTION Club members would like to remind the community that there is still time to make a difference in the lives of area children, but that time is ending soon. The annual blanket drive, which began last month, ends on Feb. 29.

Until that time, Rosewood Miracle Workers are 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 shortened the duration of our drive this year in order to be able to donate the blankets during the winter season,” explained Rosewood AKTION Club sponsor Frankie Pelster. “We still believe that we can provide a lot of blankets in that amount of time, but we are counting on the awesome community involvement that we have received in the past. The support we receive benefits so many area children who need the blankets for warmth and comfort. This drive also provides a wonderful opportunity to our Club members to lead a worthwhile community cause. We appreciate any donations that people can provide during our last few weeks of this blanket drive.”  

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.
