Scientologists Helping in the Community

The Scientology Effective Solutions web site has news about what Scientologists do to improve their communities. It says:

"Scientologists are actively engaged in helping those around them in many ways, from drug prevention programmes to blood drives, from emergency relief services with the Red Cross to Walk-a-thons sponsored by the March of Dimes. They collect holiday toys for foster children and donate food and clothing for families in need. Many contribute to initiatives to preserve or clean up their local environment."

A case in point is the Scientology Disaster Relief Team that is on the ground right now in Java to help the local authorities cope with the recent earthquake on the island. Today's news states that the World Bank says the impact of the quake was much worse than was first estimated and that it may even have caused more damage that the tsunami.

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers web site urges people who can help to contact the Volunteer Ministers coordinator.
