EKLC is Gathering Supplies for LWR School Kits
(Lutheran World Relief)
Education is important for any community, especially where poverty or
disaster has limited the options for young people to reach their potential.
School Kits contain essential supplies to help children-and in some cases,
adults-continue learning despite the hardships they face. And that learning
leads to a better life for them, their families and their communities.
There is a bin in the narthex for collection of school supplies for the
kits. Please pick up any of these things when they go on sale soon. We
Spiral notebooks (70 count, wide or college-ruled)
Pencils (unsharpened #2)
Pens (no gel ink)
Crayons (16 or 24 count)
Pink erasers (2 1/2 inch)
Rulers (30 centimeter)
Just bring in any of these things that you can, and we will put them
together later closer to the shipping day.
