Stake Relief Society Service Project and Broadcast

Sisters from all wards in the Stake gathered Saturday evening for service and socializing. Many worked on File Folder Games and visited while they ate a delicious "Sack Lunch".
Many worked on assembling School Kits for children who have no school supplies.

The best of the evening was the General Relief Society Broadcast from Salt Lake City. We heard Sister Beck speak about "Relief Society is a Faith Based Work". (click HERE to hear her talk) We were also instructed that ALL Relief Society functions will now be referred to as "Relief Society".
"Home, Family, and Personal Enrichment" as a term will no longer be used.
Sister Allread spoke and Sister Thompson spoke about "Minding the Gap" and President Eyring closed the meeting with faith inspiring stories and testimony.

Our ward has been asked to provide toys and quilts to the Humanitarian Aid. We are looking for donations of fabric and batting for quilts. If you would like more information on how you can help, please click here

Bonnie Fife is our Humanitarian Aid Specialist. She will have more information available in the next few weeks.

Updated: September 2009

As the Church responds to humanitarian needs worldwide, the need for specific types of donations varies. Currently, the items listed below would be most beneficial.

  • Hygiene kits
  • School kits
  • File folder games
  • Sweatshirts and sweatpants
  • T-shirts 0-16 years
  • Full size quilts

The Church periodically receives a surplus of some items; therefore, additional donations for these items may not be required. For the time being, the Humanitarian Center has received sufficient donations for the following items:

  • Winter caps and scarves
  • Wooden blocks and cars
  • Soft toy balls

Patterns for current need item
s are now available online.

Please refer to the Humanitarian Service Project Guidelines to make sure your donation is in compliance.

In addition to donations of items, donations to the Humanitarian Aid Fund are always welcome.
