Good Deeds are what we're about!

The Good Deeds Team within the Register of Deeds office helped raise over $1000 for Relay for Life in High Point during May and June 2006.   Relay for Life is a signature activity for the American Cancer Society. Every year, many people participate in the overnight event. Whether they walk, volunteer, or donate, this is a great event in which many people partake. This year the event was held at City Lake Park in Jamestown.

Many ROD staff attended the Relay event as seen above. Pictured left to right : Christine Spencer, Wiley Cousin, Marcelle Fowler, David Smith, Bertha Smith, Larry Conrad, Becky Morgan, Debbie Johnson, George Glaser, and Elaine Inman.

Our Charity Showcase Creative Hearts and Hands Image of The Good Deeds Team meeting with Hobie Burleson"Creative Hearts and Hands" was started by Nora Burleson and Hobie Burleson as a non-profit project for Fellowship Presbyterian Church. The charity makes baby clothing for needy infants, and pillows and hats for chemotherapy patients. It had soon outgrown its small status, as the demand for items was always great. To date, they've made and donated over 9,000 hats and pillows. On average, they deliver roughly 130 pillows to the Regional Cancer Society each month! Most amazingly, the work is done out of the Burlesons' home on sewing machines with fabric and stuffing.

And they are as humble about their work as they are productive. The News & Record wrote:

"A loose-leaf binder on her bookshelf is filled with notes from grateful cancer patients who have received a pillow or hat sewn by Burleson. Most have been forwarded by Fellowship Presbyterian, since the Burlesons don't include their names on the cards attached to each creation. The cards read: 'Made for you with God's love by Creative Hearts and Hands,' and include only the church's address." Read the Full Article

The Prayer Shawl Group is a ministry at First Lutheran Church comprised of members who knit shawls, each of which is delivered to a chemotherapy patient. As an inspiration to other churches, similar knitting ministries have been started in other places in the state, perhaps due to the media coverage the group has received. The News & Record said that:

". . . these women and a dozen others have been gathered a few times each month to knit shawls—soft, cuddly wraps that hang over the shoulders. The women call the wraps healing shawls because they like to think the weave in helpful prayers with every stitch."
