During Lent, we again join Lutheran World Relief’s Project Promise: Building Kits of Care. Each week, we collect a different item that will be used to assemble Personal Care Kits that give people around the world tools to stay healthy in life’s most challenging situations.
Our goal is to assemble at least 100 LWR Care Kits during Lent.
Here’s our collection schedule:
Anytime: Bath towels (new, light-weight, maximum 52″x27″, dark color recommended)
March 4: Toothbrushes (adult size, in original packaging)
March 11: Combs(sturdy, please! No picks or fine toothed combs)
March 18: Nail Clippers (metal, attached file optional)
March 25: Bars of Soap (each kit includes 2 bars of soap)
