The LWR Quilt Campaign 2013 50,000 Quilts ready to be shipped

Quilt & Kit Shipping Fund

Help Ship Quilts & Kits

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 across the sea cares. Every year, Lutheran groups and individuals put their hearts and hands into sewing Quilts and assembling Kits of baby, health, school and sewing items, which LWR distributes efficiently and economically. LWR Quilts & Kits convey a priceless message of love and commitment to people in desperate need.

Because of our experience and partnerships on the ground, we are able to deliver more than $14 million worth of Quilts and Kits for just about $1.7 million in operating costs. If you don’t sew or cannot be a part of a kit-making project, give to the Quilt & Kit Shipping Fund. For every $1 you give, someone in need receives $8 worth of essential personal items.

And if you donate $500 now, you have the opportunity to have your name added to our Good Samaritan Quilt Plaza.
