Never too old to help
Provo UT Daily Herald 6Oct99 P2
By Becky Farnsworth: The Daily Herald

Winifred Durrant of Provo is still active in humanitarian projects at age 78. Among her recent projects are putting together 250 infant kits which include two handmade diapers, a handmade gown, a receiving blanket, bar of soap, a hand-crocheted hat, booties and diaper pins to be sent to third world countries; piecing together patchwork quilts for Kosovo; and making beanbag toys out of material scraps.

Most of her projects are given out through the LDS Humanitarian Center. The Center is organized and operated by the LDS Church, but is a non-denominational service, helping people throughout the world, regardless of religion.

For more information, contact the Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Effort at P.O. Box 27528, Salt Lake City, Utah 84127-0528; telephone (80l) 240-6060, Monday - Friday at 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
