Iowa Valley Grinnell students Bryce DeKoning and Amy Steffen recently spearheaded the donation of 48 blankets to the Grinnell Police and Fire Departments, to be given to people in crisis situations as police and firefighters deem appropriate.  Members of IVG’s Phi Theta Kappa honor society chapter, DeKoning and Steffen felt strongly about the need for PTK to conduct a community service project. Steffen made all 48 blankets with a $50 donation from Wal-Mart, and the rest out of her own pocket.
