During the summer, Service Workshop collects school supplies for Lutheran World Relief school kits. These kits contain essential supplies to help children – and, in some cases, adults – continue learning in the face of serious obstacles such as extreme poverty. That learning leads to a better life for them, their families and their communities. School supplies go on sale in stores beginning in July, so this is a good time to purchase one set for your child and a second to help another child. Each kit includes:

  • 4 70-sheet notebooks
  • A ruler, pencil sharpener and blunt scissors
  • 5 unsharpened #2 pencils
  • 5 black or blue ballpoint pens
  • 24 count box of crayons
  • 2-½” eraser

Kits are assembled in September and distributed by Lutheran World Relief to 19 countries throughout the world.
