LWR Quilt and Kit Pipeline

Quilts and kits make a long journey to get to their recipients.

It’s a journey that takes time and careful preparation.

Throughout the year many volunteers come together to assemble LWR Mission Quilts and Kits of Care. The quilts and kits are shipped to one of LWR’s two warehouses in Minnesota or Maryland.

Once items reach the warehouse, they are sorted and packed by staff and volunteers, both to prevent damage but also to ensure efficient and cost-effective packing. Depending on when the items arrive and how busy the season is, it can take four to six months from the time quilts and kits arrive at the warehouse to when they are processed, repacked and ready for shipment.

In, the meantime, LWR staff work with partners overseas to determine where and what items are most needed. LWR then notifies its warehouses to prepare the necessary materials for shipment. This process takes one to two months

Once the quilts and kits are prepared for shipment, they travel by ocean freight to the receiving partner in countries around the world. This process can take from one to two months, depending on which warehouse the materials are sent from and to which country they are going.

From there our partners get items cleared through customs, transfer them to storage (where they can be safely held until they can be distributed) and sort them according to local needs.

The time and care put into each step in the journey of your quilts and kits are meant to ensure that your gifts of love arrive safely and in good condition, and in a manner that promotes the dignity of the recipient.
