Donations out March 2012By
Donations have been flowing in and out, in a steady rhythym, to help the sick and needy. A large donation was taken to St Alphonsus Hospital System Foundation in Boise, Idaho this week of 120 handmade knitted booties, 96 diapers, and a truckload of burial layettes, baby afghans, hats, clothing, gowns, toys and more.
A donation of children’s clothing and blankets were donated to St Vincent de Paul outreach program in Garden City, Missouri.
A donation of 3 queen size patchwork quilts were taken to the Vets for Success Program.
A donation of baby items were given to a needy family, another donation of children’s items were given to a family who had a need for them.
A donation of sewing supplies and yarn were given out to several people who had needs but were willing to make the items needed, they just needed the supplies and we were happy to provide them.
Much needed sewing machines were donated to churches and organizations who are using them to help the sick and needy. Crochet hooks, knitting needles, an electric yarn winder and other supplies and equipment were donated out for the benefit of the indigent and ailing.
Some of the donated items were from the LDS Humanitarian Service Room who permanently closed their doors this past week to transition the charity efforts locally to Branches, Wards and Stakes throughout the Mormon Church in an effort to reach even more of those needing help and keeping resources local to the communities who donate them.
Relief Share volunteers shall miss working in with amazing LDS volunteers who rise above and beyond the call of duty, many of them suffering hardships and loss of family members, but keep on donating their service and time in a Christlike manner.
It has been an honor and pleasure for Relief Share volunteers to work in the service room and we are grateful for our association with them.
Relief Share continues to meet the needs of the sick and indigent, as we have done for years, with the rising number of natural disasters and the downturn in the economy having broached the ability for previously proficient breadwinners to continue to provide for their families.
