Lutheran World Relief School Kits
First Women’s Ministry is still collecting items for Lutheran World Relief “School Kits” through the end of August. During the next few weeks, please clip the “School Kit needs” list from your August Chimes and donate what you can in the basket located by the church office. School kits are packed in cloth drawstring backpacks and sent to places where even the few required school supplies may be more than a family can afford.
Following is the list of items needed:
• 70–sheet spiral notebooks (no loose-leaf paper)
• rulers (30 cm)
• pencil sharpeners
• blunt scissors
• #2 unsharpened pencils
• black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink)
• Crayola crayons (16 or 24 count)
• 2 ½” erasers
Please Note: Each school kit requires four of the 70-sheet spiral notebooks. Donations may be left in the
basket outside the church office. Thank you for giving a child the opportunity to go to school. Pencils and
paper can help write a positive future!
