The Women of the ELCA of Grace will be assembling school kits for Lutheran World Relief on October 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Library. An evening hour was selected in order to make it possible for more women to participate. All women are invited to join in this servant event. A brief discussion about WELCA will be held in conjunction with our service project.
Each School Kit contains the following items. Donations of any of these items will be greatly appreciated. Boxes will be in the gathering spaces during the month of September to receive donations.
– Four 70-sheet notebooks of wide or college-ruled paper approximately 8” x 10½”; NO LOOSE LEAF PAPER PLEASE
– One 30-centimeter ruler or a ruler with centimeters on one side and inches on the other
– One pencil sharpener
– One blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well)
– Five unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers; secure together with a rubber band
– One box of 16 or 24 crayons
– One 2½” eraser
– 5 black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink); secure together with a rubber rand
Monetary donations toward materials and mailing are always appreciated. Checks should be made to Grace Lutheran Church and clearly marked for WELCA.
All women are invited to come out and help prepare the school kits which make a difference for children around the world. It is an opportunity to work together and get to know one another here at Grace while also serving a greater need!
