Baskets of Promise
Lent: A Season of Hope
First American Lutheran Church partnered with Lutheran World Relief: Baskets of Promise to help poor and struggling families around the world during this Lenten season. Each week, we asked folks to bring in an item to use in a personal care kit. Once the personal care kits are assembled we will ship them to Lutheran World Relief and they will be mailed all around the world.
For you have been a refuge to the poor, a refugee to the needy in their distress, a shelter from the rainstorm and a shade from the heat. (Isaiah 25:4)
We collected a total of:
51 bath towels, 98 adult sized toothbrushes, 59 sturdy combs, 60 metal nail clippers, and 127 bars of soap. We are able to send 51 personal care kits to Lutheran World Relief!
The leftover items can be used for future personal care kits.
