Service Project for Women with Cancer

For the past four years I have been the President of our women's group, Relief Society, for about 175 women in our ward. [In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints we all receive unpaid callings to serve as teachers, leaders or in other ways we are asked.] One of our Relief Society goals is to strengthen each other and to serve those around us.

This 2 1/2 minute 'movie' made by Christie Wall shows a service project that women from our ward completed last Saturday to benefit local women with breast cancer. Some women learned to knit or crochet to assist in this project. I knit two scarves (before the event) and made pillows. We were excited to present over 40 scarves and 100 small pillows to comfort women in our area.
