The Relief Society Organization of the Auburn Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints – under the direction of president Karen Little – recently gathered and provided supplies to two local charities.
About 70 women gathered to make blankets for children and adults, build 200 hygiene kits and sort new clothing for children and adults, as well as toys and shoes.
The gathering of items for the project totaled 4,989. The total did not include contributions gathered for the Auburn Food Bank.
Chairs Linda Sinclair and Michelle Johnson managed the project.
Church members from the Auburn district donated the items to the charities – Child Haven and Dream Center.
The Dream Center, which has been in Auburn for about a year, was started by Rick Cameron for the purpose of helping individuals in the community. Cameron was a guest speaker at the luncheon after the completion of the project.
The Relief Society Organization in Auburn has a membership of 852 women. Worldwide membership totals into the millions of women.
