Lincoln non-profit hosts blanket drive for LPS children living in poverty

Good News Notes:

“Now that the new year is here, many of us are thinking about our personal goals, but this can also be a good time to figure out ways we can help others. A Lincoln non-profit is asking for the community’s help, by simply donating blankets.

Forty-six percent of all Lincoln Public School students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Research shows children who live in poverty have a higher rate of dropping out of school.

“Blixt Locally Grown” is a non-profit that works in schools in Lincoln integrating the arts into the lives of children and their families. In 2016, Blixt first organized a blanket drive for kids living in poverty who attended Clinton Elementary School.”
