The Relief Society (Dubuque, IA)

We are the Relief Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints of Dubuque, Iowa. One objective of this women’s group is to exercise charity and nurture those in need. Last spring we decided the Preemie Project would be ideal for fulfilling this objective because it provides so many varied opportunities to share our talents with others. Every member of our organization can do something for the project: hand-made keepsake cards, knitting, crocheting, sewing, crafting, and donating items.

We have group workdays and also work individually. We have also involved the eight to eighteen year old girls in the project. They have helped on our workdays and created two quilts for donation. In the near future we will be instructing the girls on how to loom preemie hats for donation. We feel it is important for the youth to learn through practice the important principle of service to others.

The women often comment how meaningful it is to be able to bring a little comfort to those who are worried about the welfare of their little ones or are grieving. It enriches our life to know we have touched the hearts of others.
