We realize it's a long list. It's a brainstorm product and pretty inclusive, so don't feel overwhelmed.
If you do not have something to donate, but would like to help out, feel free to give an envelope with your contribution to a member of the RS presidency. We'll pool whatever is received and pick up whatever might still be on the list.
The Relief Society presidency appreciates your kindness and willingness to serve, particularly at a time when many of us are experiencing the effects of the economic downtown of the last few years. Please know that the Lord honors and blesses those who give as well as those who would give if they had the means to do so.
