LDS Relief Society in SC Makes Quilts for Abused Children

MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA -- A service project by a Myrtle Beach South Carolina Relief Society was recognized Thursday in the Myrtle Beach Sun. The Relief Society met August 8th to complete a months-long service project making 20 quilts for abused children and refurbishing the home that houses them.

In past years the group has sponsored Red Cross blood drives and made stuffed bears and dolls for police to use with children in unsettling situations. This year they chose to assist the Home for Abused Children in Myrtle Beach, located on South Carolina highway 90.

In addition to providing the quilts, which will be given to the children in the home so they have something of their own to take with them, the Relief Society organized other donations for the home including window treatments, matching spreads, paint, switch plates and receptacles, a panel box and breakers, the electrician to donate his labor, a dishwasher, stove and refrigerator. They also organized Church members who donated their labor to put the donations in place in the home.
