Alpena, Mich. — Members of the Exchange Club and Alpena High School Excel Club have been busy putting together fleece blankets, and now, that hard work has paid off.
The groups recently made 26 fleece blankets and donated them to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeast Michigan. It’s the fifth year that the exchange club has donated blankets to the children advocacy center.
Since April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, the club is encouraging folks to wear blue every Monday and share their photos on Facebook. Use the #BlueMondays, #BelieveinBlue, or #PreventionofChildAbuse.
The national exchange club adopted child abuse prevention as it’s national project in 1979.
