Season of Hope
The 6th Annual Season of Hope collection was held during the Lenten season at Christ’s United Lutheran Church, Ashland. It was again a Thrivent Action Team project to collect the items for Personal Care Kits for LWR and also to purchase batting for knotted quilts which we prepare in the fall. This year we were able to assemble 30 PC Kits and 60 quilts. In August, a similar Action Team project was held for the supplies to assemble 50 School Kits.
In June of each year, an In-Gathering of kits and quilts for LWR is held for the Schuylkill Cluster congregations. The gathered items are loaded on a truck which takes them to the LWR Warehouse in Maryland. We have been using a track identification system to receive annual report on where our donated items are shipped around the world to those in great need.
