Lutheran World Relief  LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF SERVICE PROJECTS
 
  MAKING HEALTH KITS:  

Families who must flee their homes quickly often do not have time to pack essential items. A health kit helps children, women and men who are refugees maintain personal hygiene while living in exile. These items may also contribute to a new start for those who can return home.  Our goal is to complete 10 kits. Please buy any of these following items to be assembled into the kits:
· One hand towel (terrycloth kitchen towel would work)
· One wash cloth
· One bath size bar of soap in a wrapper
· One toothbrush
· One tube of 5 to 7 oz. toothpaste
· One wide tooth comb
· One metal nail clippers with file attached
· Six bandages, ½ “ to ¾ “

Please place your donations in the bottom drawer of the armoire in the Reception Area. Thank you for being Jesus’ hands and feet here on earth. Any questions, please call the Church Office at 892-4040.

COLLECTING BLANKETS, QUILTS AND SOAP:
Our Women of the ELCA are collecting blankets and quilts (new or gently used) and bars of soap in original wrapping for LWR which sends these items to people in our country and world where there is a disaster and urgent need.

Please place your donations in marked boxes in the Reception/Narthex Areas. The blankets/quilts provide people shelter, carry babies, hold personal belongings, serve as coats and provide a warmer place to sleep. The soap is necessary to maintain a level of cleanliness to reduce disease and infection, especially where people live in close quarters, like in refugee camps.

Thank you for being Jesus’ hands and feet here on earth by helping the poor and needy people through these projects. Any questions please call the Church office at 512-892-4040.

THANK YOU FOR CARING AND SHARING!
