Jefferson County is a better place because of The Action Center. Since 1968 The Action Center has provided an immediate response to basic human needs and promoted pathways to self-sufficiency for county residents and the homeless.
On February 10th Mormon women in the Arvada area came together to help The Action Center.
The women had the opportunity to purge the unnecessary out of their lives to benefit those in need. They brought their used t-shirts to a Women’s Conference meeting where they transformed them into reusable grocery bags for The Action Center.
The Action Center will offer the “t-shirt bags” to help clients carry their groceries, clothing, or toiletries home.
The service project was available on the stage during all three hours of the conference. This service project was completed similar to tying a fleece blanket, with all the bags being hand tied/sewn on site. The service project was spearheaded by Marty Rozeski.
They made approximately 50 bags that day. A few congregations also decided to host a follow-up event for their own sisters in order to complete additional bags.
In addition, the women also collected “items of warmth” to help fill The Action Center’s Clothing Bank (coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and boots of all ages and sizes). They were new or gently used.
All the Winter Clothing collected and donated to The Action Center
