Delta Seat Covers Turn Up in North Carolina Youth Conference

SALISBURY, NORTH CAROLINA -- Some of the 50,000 seat covers donated by Delta Air Lines to the LDS Church to be turned into school bags for children in Third World countries have appeared in Salisbury, North Carolina. Some of the 275 youth attending a youth conference at Salisbury's Catawba College Friday worked on the project, cutting out school-bag patterns from the seat covers, one of three service projects the youth worked on during the conference. Some of the youth also spent the last several weeks ripping out the seams from the covers so they would be ready for Friday, and the bags will be completed during a Wake County Latter-day Saints Women's Day in November. From there, the bags will be shipped to the church's Humanitarian Service Center in Salt Lake City for distribution to impoverished nations. Thousands of the bags, filled with school supplies, have already been sent to children in El Salvador, Peru and India.
