Henderson North Middle School 300HENDERSON, Ky. (10/23/13) - North Middle School teacher Nan Ternes’ eighth grade (5th period) English Language Arts class will be hosting a blanket drive for individuals in need throughout the community.

The purpose of the blanket drive was derived after students read a story in class dealing with issues of those less fortunate and wanted to help others in the community. The mission of the project is to keep people warm during the cold winter months.

“We’ve all needed a little help at one time or another. Everyone is so excited to be working together to help people who need it. I can’t think of a better way to give back to the community,” said English Language Arts student Alyssa DeCorrevont.

Students are accepting donations of new, homemade, and/or slightly used blankets starting October 25 and continuing through December 6 at North Middle School. People may drop blankets off during the following times: Monday-Friday 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Another student commented on the drive, “Knowing how cold it gets and how hard it is to stay warm, makes this a heartwarming cause. Thinking about how warm I stay when I sleep makes me happy knowing others can sleep warm now as well,” said Issmahel Sims.

Distribution of the blankets will be made through the Youth Service Center offices at each school. The Youth Service Coordinators will provide the logistics to make sure the blankets are in the hands of those in need.
