Rotary Interact Club made knot blankets for the homeless in KC on Feb. 1. Rotary Club is an extracurricular at the school that focuses on hands-on service work in the community and found a way to change this. The next day members Holly Phalen, Gabby Staker, Megan Warnecke and Emily Zapien drove around the Plaza passing out blankets to any homeless they met.

“It was good to be pushed out of my comfort zone and confront the issue of poverty in Kansas City,” Warnecke said. “I had a lot of fun spending time with the other girls and seeing the joy our actions brought to others.”
