Ascension Lutheran Church is shipping 513 personal care kits, 27 school kits and 49 quilts to LWR. We are grateful!
We are grateful for HANDS that folded and tied personal care kits.
We are grateful for VOLUNTEERS who order, organize, pack and ship boxes filled with kits packed with hope and love.
We are grateful for GENEROUS OFFERINGS to purchase kit materials and to pay for shipping costs to LWR.
Special thanks for individual gifts for the kits from ALC members and friends, THRIVENT Action Team grants, and an ALC Foundation grant to cover a large portion of the shipping costs to LWR. LWR will see that someone who is in need will receive your gift from your hands to their hands.
PAYING IT FORWARD: This summer, our Global Ministries Team shared our knowledge and experience of making kits for Lutheran World Relief with New Hope Lutheran Church, Agoura Hills. After hearing about LWR’s kits ministry, they chose to make 200 personal care kits this year. They have also started a quilt making group, the Piece Makers, which made 24 quilts for LWR. We love to share how ALC does ministry through making kits and quilts of hope for LWR! Thanks for being an example of God’s Love in Action!
And thank you to Louise Evenson for your tireless leadership!
