Genesee County Commissioner Brenda Clack (D-Flint), along with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, has kicked-off her 2018 Blanket Drive, which will run through Thursday, December 20. The Blanket Drive is collecting new and gently used blankets that will be distributed to Catholic Charities, Shelter of Flint, Inc. and My Brother’s Keeper.
Commissioner Clack has supported this project for the past seventeen years after discovering how valuable a new blanket is to families who have family members sleeping on the floor of whatever shelter they can provide. “It hurts to know that little children are sleeping on a cold floor during these very hard winters in our community. Whatever I can do, I will”, said Commissioner Clack.
In addition, this is the second year that Commissioner Clack will be collecting small lap blankets for the animals at the Genesee County Animal Control Shelter.
Blankets, children’s gloves and hats, or monetary donations can be brought to the Genesee County Administration Building, Room 312, 1101 Beach Street, Flint, MI.
