JENKS, Oklahoma -

A group of churches combined their youth groups to create something for foster children who are just entering the system.

A group of those kids were at Boston Avenue United Methodist Church decorating "pillow bags."

The six kids represent four churches involved in the project. They and dozens of others decorated pillow cases or “pillow bags.”

"What is something that is hands on that would help other children," said Linda Saviers.

She was looking for a project for her kids at First Methodist in Jenks.

Candace Morton with Child Share told her they could use something foster children could put their things in as they transition from one place to another.

"It's very important to have something to call their own," Morton said.

How about a pillow case with a sturdy draw string, that's the perfect size and easy to carry - a pillow bag.

Other churches joined the project; Faith Methodist from Tulsa, Verdigris Methodist, and Joy Lutheran from Tulsa.

Now there are dozens of kids creating upbeat and happy scenes for their pillow bags.

The group will present the finished pillow bags to Child Share on Sunday, March 1.
