Coordinator: Health and Wholeness Ministry

Health and Wholeness Ministry assembles Personal Care Kits for Lutheran World Relief (LWR).

These kits are distributed by LWR around the world, providing hygiene, dignity and hope to those in crisis situations. The kits are sent to areas of the world where an emergency has occurred, and people are left with very little.  The kits supply basic items for survival.

Health and Wholeness welcomes donations for these kits:

  • bath towels (lightweight, dark colored, size: 20″ x 40″ to 27″ x 52″)
  • bars of soap (4-5 ounces in original packaging)
  • adult-sized toothbrushes (in original packaging; can be multi-packs)
  • large sturdy combs (no picks)
  • metal nail clippers (large or small, attached nail file optional)

Donations can be placed in the basket near the elevator in the Narthex. Kits are assembled and sent to LWR in the spring and in the fall.

  • Lenten Collection 2020 - Baskets of Promise

    The Baskets of Promise program is our special collection emphasis during Lent, and helps to fill the Personal Care Kits that are sent out in May. Our goal is to assemble 170 Personal Care Kits!
    Please keep all of your donations at home until we can gather again in person. Then we invite you to place your donations in the basket near the elevator in the Narthex
