[The Piedmont, Greenville, S. C.]

The Board of Directors of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts, have established Christian Science welfare workers in all states in the Union. A national Camp Welfare committee prevails, and branch workers carry on the work in and near all army camps and cantonments. The purpose of these welfare workers is to assist all officers and soldiers of their faith, but the work is not confined to the Christian Scientists alone, but to all of any faith.

War Relief committees have already been sent abroad to aid the suffering of all sects and creeds. These committees have charge of the welfare work in the war zones until welfare workers are established there, which it is expected will be done in a very short time. Several hundred thousand dollars have been raised to carry on this work, and activities have begun on a large scale.
