We put together a very quick service project today for the Hardin area. As you know, there have had very serious issues with flooding around the state, and the Hardin area has been particularly hard hit. President Griffin asked us put together at least 500 hygiene kits. We put the word out about noon today that we needed helping hands to assemble kits. We when gathered at 7, more that 100 members showed up. A big thank you to all who were able to come tonight and help out! We completed nearly 600 hygiene kits.
There will no doubt be more opportunities to serve in the coming weeks. Tonight we are asking members of the stake to donate clean, gently used TWIN sheets--both fitted and flat. We also need blankets of all sizes, particularly twin. We will be collecting them tomorrow evening at 7 in the stake Relief Society room. If you have sheets and blankets you can donate, but can't make it to the church tomorrow evening, please contact me (Chris Jones) directly. We will be collecting sheets and blankets now through Friday.
Please remember the members of our stake in your prayers. Sisters, please check on the sisters you visit teach-make sure they are doing alright. We have members all over the stake who are dealing with weather-related issues.
