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. Starting in July, a collection box will be in the narthex and another box will be in the office hallway. 

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.

-(We have rulers.) One 30-centimeter ruler with centimeters on one side and inches on the other

-Five unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers. Secure together with a rubber band.

-One pencil sharpener

-One blunt scissors. Safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well.

-Five black or blue ballpoint pens. Please no gel ink pens. Secure together with a rubber band.

-One box of 16 or 24 crayons

-One eraser approximately 2 ½” long

Our greatest need will be notebooks. All items should be new and in good condition. No patriotic symbols. 

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 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.
