Lutheran World Relief School Kits
We are again taking part in an outreach project through Lutheran World Relief that
provides school supplies to children who do not have any basic supplies for learning. With
so many children displaced or immigrants here in the U.S. and all over the world, the need
for these school kits is greater than ever. We have the bags, but we need the school
supplies to fill the bags. Throughout July and August, a collection box will be in the narthex
and another box will be in the office hallway. Lists of items needed will be on the boxes and
in Sunday bulletins, the Focus, and on Faith’s website.
We need the following items to fill each bag:
-Four 70-sheet notebooks of wide or college-ruled paper approx. 8” X 10 ½” (No loose-leaf paper)
-One 30-centimeter ruler with centimeters on one side and inches on the other
-One pencil sharpener
-One blunt scissors (Safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well.)
-Five unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers (secure together with a rubber band)
-Five black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink) (secure together with a rubber band)
-One box of 16 or 24 crayons
-One eraser approximately 2 ½” long
All items should be new and in good condition.
Watch for “Back to School” sales on the items needed to fill the bags. Choose whatever
items you would like to provide, as many or as few as you like. You do not need to try to
purchase all the items needed for one bag.
Cash and check donations can be made to Faith Lutheran Church and marked to go to LWR School Kits. We will purchase any items not donated that are needed to complete the bags. Any money remaining will go to LWR for overseas shipping costs. Surplus items will be donated to Family Sharing. We will pack the bags in early September.
Thank you for supporting this project to help children all over the world who need
materials for learning.
