2015 – what a wonderful new year! Update on 2014 holiday season for Relief Share!By
Relief Share update:
By this time, folks are settling back into normal routines after the busy holiday season. Fall and Christmas time for Relief Share volunteers was filled with lots of laughter, sharing, joy, caring, quilting, knitting, crochet, sewing and shopping! Relief Share volunteers donated gifts of love to the sick and needy, along with prayers for their safety, peace and security.
Some of the Relief Share items donated out included toys, clothing, coloring books, pacifiers, knitted hats, blankets, and stuffed animals to the Hospital Emergency room. The maternity ward at the hospitals were given nursing pillows, knitted and crocheted baby cocoons and hats, receiving blankets, outfits, sleepers, onesies, socks, diaper rash ointment, baby shampoo, bottles, pacifiers, diaper bags, and baby accessories. Medical clinics received baby burial layettes, comfort toys, baby clothing and blankets, dollies, teddies and more. Individuals needed help with food, clothing, heaters to stay warm, emergency supplies, comfort toys for their children and basic household supplies and goods.
We are so grateful for all of the Relief Share donors and volunteers that made the miracle of giving relief to those in need by sharing of their time, talents and funds. It takes all of us working together to make miracles happen!
