Students Make Blankets for Rescue Mission



Students throughout Topeka Public Schools are helping make the Christmas season better for many needy families.  Student council members at Landon Middle School delivered 32 fleece blankets to the Topeka Rescue Mission recently.  “We just wanted to do something nice and we decided to make blankets,” said 6th grader Lauren Dietrick.  The students accepted fleece material donations earlier this month, then spent three days turning the fleece into blankets.  Landon students have also collected new clothes, personal care items, kitchen items and food to donate to a family.  It is one of many examples of students helping others this holiday season.
