GBMS students launch Winter Clothing Drive for Family Crisis Center
Great Bend Middle School’s Student Council, shown here, is conducting a Winter Clothing Drive for the Family Crisis Center. School policy does not allow the sharing of the names of students in photos released to the public; the teacher on the back row left is Mrs. Ensley, and the teacher on the back row right is Mrs. Wells. They are both Stu-Co representatives.

Great Bend Middle School will conduct a Winter Clothing Drive from Dec. 1-20 in collaboration with the Family Crisis Center and the GBMS Student Council.

Family Engagement Coordinator Taylor Stegman at GBMS said students and their families were invited to participate in this heartwarming effort by donating gently used or new coats, winter hats, and gloves of all sizes – from infant to adult. “Together with the Family Crisis Center, we aim to make a positive impact on our community by bringing joy and warmth to families in need during the Christmas season,” she said.

“Imagine the smiles and comfort we can provide to those less fortunate through the gift of a cozy coat or warm gloves. Your generosity can truly make this holiday season brighter for someone in need.”

What to Donate: Gently used or new coats, winter hats or earmuffs, and gloves of all sizes.

Drop-off Location: Great Bend Middle School, 1919 Harrison St., Dec. 1-20.

This collaborative effort will not only benefit those in need but will also support the Family Crisis Center’s free clothing storefront, creating a softer and warmer space for those seeking assistance.

The students encourage people to clean out their storage closets and find those old coats that could use a new home.

“Every contribution, big or small, makes a meaningful impact. Let’s come together as a community, guided by the spirit of giving and kindness,” Stegman said. “Together, as the Great Bend Middle School Student Council and the Family Crisis Center, we can spread the spirit of giving and make a positive impact on our community.”
