Among the many organizations Phyllis was involved in, the Appalachian Mountain Project was closest to her heart and each year she would gather clothing to send to the project. Another passion she had, was sewing blankets and quilts, and crocheting scarfs for those in need. She loved sending care packages to military personnel, sending “Shoe-Box” care packages to children at Christmas time, and faithfully wrote to a “death row prisoner” who accepted the Lord and now ministers to others.
