Service Project for Lutheran World Relief

Join us following 9:00 AM Worship in the Park on Sunday, September 13th as we honor the ELCA National Day of Service in assembling Personal Care Kits for Lutheran World Relief (LWR).

Attendees are asked to bring along ONE light-weight, dark colored bath-size towel (between 20″ x 40″ and 52″ x 27″). One family member will be invited to visit stations under the pavilion to gather instructions and the additional items needed for the kit. They will return to their seat and assemble the kit as a family unit. Collection boxes will be set up to receive the wrapped kits.

Family units may choose to participate by providing their own “new” items, assemble the kit at home and bring it along to worship on this date. Each Personal Car Kit should include:
One light-weight, dark colored bath-size towel as described above;
Two or three bath-size bars of soap equaling 8 to 9 oz., any brand, in original wrapping;
One adult-size toothbrush* in it’s original¬† packaging;
One sturdy comb, remove packaging;
One metal nail clippers (attached file optional), remove packaging

*toothbrush multi-packs may be used by sealing an individual toothbrush in a business-size envelope; no plastic bags or wraps

To pack your care kit at home, fold the towel in half width-wise. Place the rest of the items in the towel, fold and roll so nothing falls out, and secure with yarn, ribbon, string or rubber bands.
