Among the Churches

Current Notes

Lakewood, Ohio.—Have you seen a window on Detroit Avenue near Gladys Avenue filled with comforts and clothes for men, women, and children? This is the workroom of the Comforts Forwarding committee, of the Christian Scientists of Lakewood. Here garments and articles are made for refugees, the men, women, and children in the war-stricken countries; for our boys in the Army, and for local charities. At this room not only are new garments made, but old ones are made over and mended. After making their own clothes many people have brought in the pieces which remained, and out of these are made clothes for small children. The pieces which are not large enough for this are cut up into patches for comforts. Men's shirts which are worn in spots are also made over into dresses for children and waists for boys.

The ladies in charge are glad to have all, whether Christian Scientists or not, join in this work for humanity either by sewing or contributing garments or cloth. However, there is one thing required, and that is that all garments brought to them be absolutely clean, either washed or dry cleansed; for no articles are sent abroad which are not in first-class condition.—Suburban News and Herald.
