When the Relief Society Presidency of the Katy Texas Stake was planning their fall social, held in conjunction with the General Women’s Broadcast of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they turned to the JustServe.org site to find meaningful service opportunities.
They selected several projects from the following groups: For the Angel Gowns Foundation organization, they chose to create, from donated wedding gowns, little burial gowns for babies who pass away prior to, or shortly after, birth. For the kids at the Texas Children’s Hospital, they chose to make bright and cheerful pillowcases. And for Books Between Kids, they chose to collect gently-used books, to be given to children in the local area. Seven LDS congregations of women, in the Katy Texas Stake, were asked to find 10 volunteers for each of these service projects so that a total of 70 angel burial gowns, 70 pillowcases, and lots of books could be dropped off at the Women’s Broadcast on September 23rd, and then donated to their various JustServe.org organizations.
