At OSLC, we are embarking on a new project to supply and package “Baby Care Kits” to Lutheran World Relief (LWR). These kits will then be distributed by LWR to those most in need as part of Project Promise, the same program to which we send our school kits and our quilts. Our goal is to create at least 15 full baby care kits that will be included with the quilts and school kits that will be shipped in May 2018.
How you can help:
LWR has provided clear instructions on what items should be in each kit. (They must be sensitive to the many laws regarding imports to various countries.) At OSLC, we’re hoping to make it easy to participate.
Starting this Sunday, March 4, you’ll find a ‘clothesline’ display in the Narthex. Simply pick as many items as you wish to purchase/contribute, sign up for them on the signup sheet, and return the item(s) to OSLC. We’ll have a “Baby Care Kit” container outside of the Church Office, so you can turn in the items whenever you have them. The deadline will be Sunday, April 29.
If you have any questions, please contact either Wendy Manganiello, Kari Jo Grant, or the church office. Thank you for your generosity!
