School - Lutheran World Relief School Kit Collection

We are again collecting school supplies to make kits for Lutheran World Relief. These School Kits are sent all over the world. To the children who receive School Kits, these supplies mean the difference between getting an education or not. Public school is usually free, but in the places where LWR works, even a few required supplies, like pens and paper, may be more than many families can afford. As you are buying school supplies for your children, please consider purchasing a few extra items. You may donate items individually or put together a complete bag. Last year we completed 130 kits. It would be exciting to exceed that amount this year.

Each School Kit consists of:

  • 4 spiral notebooks
  • 1 ruler
  • 1 pencil sharpener
  • 1 pair of safety scissors
  • 5 unsharpened pencils secured with rubber band
  • 5 blue/black pens secured with rubber band
  • 1 box of 24 crayons
  • 1 large eraser

In the past, spiral notebooks and scissors were the items we ran out of first. You can bring your donations to your child's classroom (or any classroom) anytime until the end of September. If you would rather donate money, we will be including a check to help with the cost of shipping these bags. Each bag costs $1.40 to ship. If anyone would like to make their own bag, a pattern is available online PDF iconHERE or from Miss Scheiwe. If you have any questions, please contact Miss Scheiwe (wendy.scheiwe@st-matthew.org). Please bring your donations in by September 30, 2018.
