During Lent, we again join Lutheran World Relief’s Season of Hope appeal. 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 Sunday collection schedule is below, but we will gratefully receive items every Sunday, especially towels.
When emergencies like natural disasters or conflict arise, many families must flee their homes, leaving their belongings behind. When they arrive in a refugee camp or other place of safety, they are scared, vulnerable and dirty from the travel. The simple items included in a Personal Care Kit allow them to wash away the dirt and sweat, with the fresh sent of soap and the softness of a towel as reminder of someone’s care and concern for them in their plight.
Our goal is to assemble 100 LWR Care Kits during Lent. Drop items off in the narthex or church office. Here’s our collection schedule:
- April 14: Bars of Soap (each kit includes 2 bars of soap)
Everyone is invited to join the Luther League in assembling our Personal Care Kits after the Good Friday service on April 19.
