Baskets of Promise Response

Each Wednesday & Sunday of Lent we asked folks to bring a specific item for donation that will be used to assemble Personal Care Kits that give people around the world tools to stay healthy in life’s most challenging situations.

Our congregational goal was to assemble 20 Lutheran World Relief (LWR) Care Kits during Lent!  After all was counted it turns out that we will be able to provide 28 Care Kits. [each kit consisted of 2 bars of soap, 1 toothbrush, 1 comb & 1 nail clipper wrapped in a towel and tied with yarn]  Thank You’ to everyone who donated for this project.

   Here are the collection totals:

Bars of Soap = 83
Widetooth Combs =59
Bath Towels = 38 Nail Clippers = 28
Toothbrushes = 96

After assembling the kits (special thanks to confirmation student, Alex Moreno for doing this) the remaining items were given to the Zumbrota Area Food Shelf.
