Christian Science War Relief Work
On August 22, 1940, The Christian Science Monitor published the first item of news in connection with War Relief Work being undertaken by The Mother Church since hostilities began in Europe in September, 1939. This was the announcement of the opening of a Christian Science Rest Room for soldiers in England. The item read in part as follows: "Rooms were recently opened in Aldershot, Britain's biggest training camp, at 76 Victoria Road, one of the busiest streets. They have been organized by the Christian Science War Relief Committee for London and the counties in which London is situated. . . . The rooms are recognized by the Aldershot Command and notices about them and the services held there appear in Command Orders. Similar rooms have been opened in other big military centers."
Information is continually being received from Great Britain of the good work being done by the Christian Science Welfare Rooms for soldiers, and of the help and comfort they bring to others besides Christian Scientists. Since last summer, many more such War Relief Rooms have been opened in various parts of the country.
On September 20, 1940, the following statement was issued in The Christian Science Monitor: "The Christian Science War Relief Committee in Boston has opened a depot at 235-237 Huntington Avenue, adjacent to the park in front of The Mother Church edifices, and new goods for the purposes designated are being received there and prepared for shipment to the Committee in London, England."
