WELCA – Gift Boxes for Seafarer’s

WELCA – Gift Boxes for Seafarer’s

The Grace Lutheran Women of the ELCA will be packing boxes for the International Seafarer’s Center at the Port of Baltimore. Some crew members earn less than $1,000 a month, so these boxes make a big difference in their lives. If you would like to contribute to this project, the following articles are needed:


-toiletries such as bars of soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand cream, combs, chapstick (no unwrapped items)

-warm scarves (most of the seafarers are small men) blue or black preferred

-warm socks

-gloves (men’s small) and hats

-pens and pencils

-pads of paper

-playing cards

-Hand warmers

-sewing kits


-hard candy


Collection boxes will be in both Upper and Lower Gathering Spaces during the month of November. Assembly of the boxes will be held on Wednesday, December 5 at 6:30 pm in the Library.
