JOHN?DAY - It's a labor of love that brings four John Day Seventh-day Adventist ladies - Arlene Davidson, Sandra Sutton, Kathy Hoffman and Annette Beam - together each Monday.
They gather to make Bags of Love, tote bags and quilts, for children in foster care.
SDA Church members in Dayville, Ardis and Warren Pancake, and sisters Marsha and Rosalie Smarr are also involved with the project. They add personal care items as well as toys and games according to the child's age and gender.
About six totes were given away last year.
"The ones that were given out were very appreciated," said Jan Keil Grant County supervisor for child welfare.
"They do a beautiful job."
