Looking for a service project to incorporate into this summer's VBS? Assemble "Kits of Care" for Lutheran World Relief! There are many types of Kits to bring youth together in service to our neighbors in need:
-School Kits : Simple school supplies, like notebooks, pencils and scissors, make a world of difference for families that struggle to afford their children's education
-Personal Care Kits: Basic hygiene items - soap, nail clippers, a towel - are crucial to keeping families healthy, especially after leaving their homes because of war or natural disasters
-Fleece Tie Blankets : In a hospital room or on the hard ground, these handmade blankets provide protection and a sense of comfort.
LWR has a number of resources available to help VBS leaders collect items, assemble kits and track them as they travel around the world. Visit: www.lwr.org/kits to get started!
