Salem Women of the ELCA/Evangelism Team and Sunday School will again work together to collect school supplies for the Lutheran World Relief School Kit project.                                                 

The collection tote and poster will be set up for collection beginning on Sunday, August 14th.                   

We have been approved for a Thrivent Action Team card to help purchase the school supplies we need to supplement what we collect.                   

We will be collecting supplies through Sunday, September 25th when we will assemble the kits during the Sunday School hour.  

If you are able to help out by purchasing any of the supplies listed it will be greatly appreciated.  

If anyone wishes to make a monetary donation to the LWR School Kit project W/ELCA will use the donation to purchase the items for the kits. Checks can be made out to W/ELCA with a note “for the LWR school kits”.  

Each LWR School Kit contains the following items:

(4) 70 sheet notebooks of wide or college ruled paper-not loose leaf paper

(1) 30 centimeter ruler or a ruler with centimeters on one side & inches on the other

(1) Pencil sharpener

(1) Pair of blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well)

(5) Unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers

(5) Black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink)

(1) Box of 16 or 24 crayons

(1) 2-1/2” eraser  

Please note that the items in the kits are very specific per Luther an World Relief guidelines so that each student receives the same supplies.
