2017 Lent Mission Project – Care Kits for Homeless Neighbors.
Once again, Reformation Lutheran Church will join with Lutherans across Southeastern PA to collect items for self care and then provide completed Care Kits for distribution to those living in homelessness in Philadelphia on the Synod Youth Helping Hands Day, April 22.
Empty gallon-size storage bags containing a list of basic items, along with instructions, will be handed out at the end of our worship services March 5 and 12. Additional bags will be available in the Gathering Space. Please return the bag to the church by Sunday, March 26 filled with items like toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, razor, chap stick, socks, lotion, hand sanitizer, wipes, gloves, granola bars or crackers and sanitary napkins. In addition, the Synod Youth are collecting sturdy backpacks to help with distribution. In your filled zip lock Care Kit, do consider adding a favorite Bible verse and /or prayer for the recipient. This is a great project for all ages and again enables us to serve a neighbor in need.
