Loading LWR quilts and kits for shipping.

St. John’s has been a contributor to LWR for many decades.  Our church sends the following items to LWR: quilts, bars of soap, sewing kits, health kits, layettes,  school kits and blankets.  Through sale of some quilts and a Sunday offering, money is also sent to LWR to help ship these projects to wherever in the world they are most needed.

The need for these items never ends.  Thank you to all of the quilting ladies who tirelessly make the quilts at church throughout the entire year.  Thanks to those who work from home sewing quilt tops or school bags, or knitting sweaters for the layettes.  Thanks to those who purchase items for the various projects.  This congregation has been very generous to those in desperate need.  As Jesus said, “Just as you did it for the least of these…you have done it unto me.”  (Matthew 25).
