Calendar and Covid restriction. You can still serve!

Dearest SWS heroes,

Joining together in September 2020, after the covid restrictions prevented us from serving for a while, was wonderful! However, as restrictions tighten again, we will not be able to gather as a group on December 5. HOWEVER, BUT, AND MOVING FORWARD...we highly encourage families and small groups to continue doing what you can to serve!  



Here's some ideas from some of our friends:
  • Alexus Allen, from American Fork, UT and her coworkers are collecting items to make humanitarian kits and donate them to a local homeless shelter.
  • Joseph Steed, from Provo, UT and his BYU neighbors are divvying out humanitarian projects to apartments in their ward to collectively donate kits, quilts, hat looms, and origami to SWS
  • Marilee Cole, from Cedar Hills, UT and her friends are making quilts at home and donating them to SWS.
  • Lots of families are making bead geckos, blankets, and bead bracelets at home and then bringing them to SWS
  • Aubrey, from Vineyard, UT learned how to make quilts with her Grandma and donated them to SWS
  • Asa Hull, from American Fork, UT learned how to make loomed hats and donated 15 to SWS
There are still people who need our help, so let's do what we can with the restrictions we have!

We would very much appreciate if you could make these items at home, and bring them to us so we can distribute them to our contacts (Please, let items air out for a few days to ensure safety). Here are our most needed items that we think are great for making at home. As always, find how to make everything we make under the SWS at Home tab:
  • QUILTS! Quilts are the most important thing we donate because they provide warmth, comfort, and protection. Go to our quilt instruction page to learn how.
  • HAT LOOMS keep little heads all over the world warm. You can order a hat loom on amazon here. Make sure to not use thin yarn. 
  • BABY RECEIVING BLANKETS are also very valuable and we include them in precious newborn kits 
  • ORIGAMI is super fun for the maker and receiver. Watch our tutorial on how to make an origami kit
  • HUMANITARIAN KITS. Your group can make kits at home! We admit this can get really expensive (one of the perks of SWS group projects), but look for sales, get creative, and you'll know what to do.
  • SERVE AROUND YOU! SWS is not the only way to serve. Look for opportunities all around you to do kind deeds, give loves to someone who is lonely, and reach outside of our covid saturated minds. You've got this!

There are many organizations locally who could really use help. Please consider donating to them, or donating to us (humanitarian items, not food pantry items) and we give to them:
