Community Service has been helping and coordinating activities with others even during quarantine. The committee held a virtual meeting. Brainstorming, we identified several ways in which we could help.
With our stockpile of yarn, we donated yarn and sewing needles to Helping Hands. This organization in turn donates knitted and crocheted items to shelters and hospitals. We also gave yarn to some of our members to that they can continue to crochet their beautiful blankets. Once we are allowed, these blankets will be donated as well.
We were alerted that someone had over 100 books that they wanted to find a new home for. MWI coordinated with The Book Fairies, who picked up the books and then donated them to children in need.
Another project we are working on is collecting old eyeglasses. The glasses will be used to make eyeglasses for those who cannot afford to purchase them. So, kindly gather up all your old eyeglasses.
Please let us know if you have any ideas of how Community Service can be of assistance. Stay safe and hopefully we can all get together in person soon.
