WELCA School Kits

It’s that time again!  Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCA) is assembling school kits for Lutheran World Relief. These kits make the difference between going to school or not for many children in poverty-ridden areas. The supplies needed are:

  • 70-sheet notebooks
  • 30 centimeter rulers or a ruler with centimeters on one side and inches on the other
  • pencil sharpener
  • blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well)
  • unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers
  • black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink)
  • box of 16 to 24 crayons
  • 2 and 2 1/2 inch erasers.

There is a shopping list in the Narthex on the table where the box to put the supplies in. We will take money or a check and shop for you. Thank you for your help with this project.
