Rosewood AKTION Club seeking blankets through March 31

Posted Jan 13, 2021 2:00 PM

Rosewood Miracle Workers AKTION Club is conducting a blanket drive as a way to help children in need. Now through March 31, Rosewood Miracle Workers are accepting new blankets, quilts, and homemade blankets. They are also accepting monetary donations, which will be used to purchase additional blankets.

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.

“Our AKTION Club members always look forward to our annual blanket drive; they take great pride in conducting it,” explained Rosewood AKTION Club sponsor Frankie Pelster. “That’s because they know how much the gift of warmth and comfort means to the children who receive blankets. They hear from representatives of both agencies about what the donations mean to the children and their families who receive them. And each year, there is such a great need for more blankets. We are so appreciative of anyone who can help us with our worthy cause.”

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. 

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.
