LDS Ward Makes 78 Quilts
Los Angeles Times 20May00 D1
By Nancy Kinsey Needham: Special to the Times

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA -- Hundreds of Mormon women in Ventura, California have joined together recently to provide local law enforcement a new tool--an assortment of handmade quilts to wrap around victims in times of need.

Two hundred and fifty local members of the church's Relief Society met monthly to make the quilts which will go into the trunks of Ventura Police Department patrol cars.

The 78 quilts were donated Friday morning at the police station in Ventura.

Police Chief, Mike Tracy said, "They will be used to help children and victims of crime and abuse find comfort during times of distress."

The next service project for this group will be "Hats from the Heart" on June 3 at 3 p.m., when Relief Society women will sew hats for cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy treatments.
