LWR Project – Join Lutherans across the U.S. in commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, being servants of all by making LWR Kits of Care!
What You Support – For families who have lost everything due to a natural disaster or violence, small items of comfort — a warm quilt, a bar of soap, a set of pencils — let them know someone overseas cares.
LWR Quilts & Kits convey a priceless message of love and commitment to people in desperate need. In 2016, Lutheran World Relief delivered more than $14 million worth of Quilts and Kits for just $1.7 million in operating costs. A neighbor in need receives $9 worth of items for every $1 given to the shipping fund.
If you are interested in the assembly instructions for quilts and kits you may request a copy of these pamphlets by calling 800-597-5972 or logging on to the https://lwr.org website.
If you have a question or need labels, don’t hesitate to e-mail Julie Tyler at or give her a call (1-866-373-1343 toll free). The CARE-VAN mailing will be sent to participating congregations the mid part of September. The CARE-VAN location sites will be listed in the October Encourager.
The work of our hearts and hands is an immeasurable blessing to families in need around the world!
