Mission and Outreach
The Heavenly Comforters are a group of women and young girls committed to outreach within Good Shepherd with a goal of spreading the warmth of Christ – literally.
Over 58 quilts have been made and presented to the Red Cross since inception, families who experienced flooding in Iowa have been assisted, and over 50 dog blankets have been made and donated to the Sioux Falls Humane Society. Hats, gloves, mittens and socks were collected and delivered to Achieve, Children’s Inn and Children’s Home Society for Christmas of 2009.
In addition, Heavenly Comforters creates extra items for sale to raise money for quilting materials, including quilts, receiving blankets, sweaters, and more.
