A message from Social Concerns

We are collecting completed kits and donations for Lutheran World Relief's Personal Care Kits until Sunday, May 1st, 2011. It costs about $11 to purchase the items that make up the kits. If you would like to donate completed kits, please follow these assembly instructions:

Include the following items in each Personal Care Kit:
  • One bath-size towel (approximately 52" X 27"), dark color recommended
  • Two bath-size bars (4 to 5 oz.) of soap, any brand, in original wrapping
  • One adult-size toothbrush in its original packaging*
  • One sturdy comb, remove packaging
  • One metal nail clippers, remove packaging
*Toothbrush multi-packs may be used by sealing an individual toothbrush in a business envelope; no plastic bags or wrap

Do not add other items or leave out any of the items listed. All items should be new and in good condition. Wrap all the items in the towel and tie securely with ribbons or yarn. Do not enclose the Kit or any of its contents in plastic bags.

Note that the items included this year are a little different from previous years. If you would like to donate funds, please mark "Social Concerns - health kits" on your check. Thank you!
