Mercy Kits Are Needed for Disaster Victims
Part of the LWML pledge states that we are… ”pledging our willing service wherever and whenever He has need of us.” Recent tornados and floods around the country have resulted in a barrage of requests for Mercy Kits (also known as Hygiene Kits) for the victims. Your help is needed to replenish the supply of Kits for Lutheran World Relief.
What the Mercy Kits Include (Include the following items in each Mercy Personal Care Kit )
Wrap all the items in the towel and tie securely with ribbons or yarn.
Also Needed by Lutheran World Relief are Quilts
