First City Lions Blanket Project

Bemidji First City Lions received a $250 Thrivent Action Team Grant that enabled the club to purchase materials to create fleece blankets for Bemidji Area Schools Families in Transition Program and for children at the Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo, ND.
“Blanket Bees” are taking place to create the blankets on Saturday mornings as we strengthen friendships in our club.
The club will also donate blankets to children attending Camp KACE. This summer camp enables children who are battling cancer and their siblings to attend a weeklong camp. The funding for these blankets came from a community member as a Christmas donation to the club.
