Pioneer Day Celebrated with Service
FONTANA, CALIFORNIA -- LDS Church members in the Fontana Stake will
recognize Pioneer Day with several service projects this weekend. They hope
to assemble 100 kits for children removed from abusive homes. The kits,
which will include hairbrushes, towels, soap, shampoo and other hygiene
products; checkerboards and other games; and quilts stake members have made,
will be donated to the Dr. Laura Schlessinger Foundation for distribution.
Earlier this year the stake adopted a battered women's shelter and helped
renovate it and has collected food for homeless shelters and toys for needy
kids at Christmas.The Rancho Cucamonga Stake has also planned service
projects this weekend. Stake members will meet at 7 am Saturday to plant
greenery and clear brush on San Bernardino Avenue both along the curb an in
vacant lots in town.
