Last Two Weeks To Donate to Rosewood AKTION Club Blanket Drive

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 in mid-January, ends on March 15.

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 three area agencies: Family Crisis Center, Barton County Health Department, and Central Kansas Dream Center.

“Donations haven’t been as much this year, compared to previous years of our drive, so we are hoping to finish strong these last few weeks,” said Rosewood AKTION Club sponsor Frankie Pelster. “The support we receive helps three amazing organizations in our community that do so much for children, and it provides wonderful incentive to our Club members to lead a worthwhile cause. We appreciate any donations that people can provide for our 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.
