Coupons and Christmas

"People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society." ~ Vince Lombardi
Barabara and Carolyn clipping coupons
In September, we clipped thousands of coupons to send to the families of servicemen who are overseas.  These families can take the manufacturer's coupons and use them at the px when they go shopping.  We had many sisters donate coupons and we were surprised at how long it took to cut them all out and sort them into "grocery" and "non-grocery."  We hope these coupons will help those who are serving our country to stretch their budgets a little farther.

Back to School

"Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.  The human mind is our fundamental resource." John F. Kennedy
In July we started collecting school supplies: notebooks, pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, colored pencils, and scissors.  At our August meeting we sewed 15 school bags for children and packed them with school supplies.  These school kits, along with lots of extra school supplies were taken to the LDS Humanitarian Center and were given to children in Utah County to start school with.
