LDS Ward's Humanitarian Service
Los Angeles Times 22May00 D1

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CALIFORNIA -- The volunteer efforts of the Rancho Santa Margarita LDS Relief Society are the focus of this article by the LA Times.

In observance of Humanitarian Services Day on Thursday, about 300 workers put together the bandages, along with children's items ranging from clothes to toys. The materials were donated by local companies and residents.

Volunteer Joy Lindahl, who sews girls' dresses in her spare time and donated boxes of them to the relief effort, said the quality of the donated items was top-notch.

"They can use basically anything, but I never make anything I wouldn't put on my own grandchildren," she said.

Four hundred infant kits, each including a nightgown, receiving blanket, four diapers, diaper pins, booties and soap, 400 hygiene kits, quilts, teddy bears and the leper bandages will be shipped to a main distribution center in Salt Lake City. From there, the items will be packaged to meet U.S. Customs Service guidelines and sent to countries in East Asia and Africa.
