Lutheran World Relief Mission

worldreliefquiltsLutheran World Relief is a ministry of US Lutherans, serving communities living in poverty overseas. In 2012, LWR provided $14.9 million in goods and assistance to improve harvests, health and education to 7,827,163 people in 35 countries around the world. St. John’s is proud to be able to send quilts and kits prepared by our congregation each year.

In October 2012, we delivered the following items to the railroad boxcards in Madison:
  • 171 quilts
  • 51 baby care kits
  • 58 personal kits
  • 59 school kits

The items collected from south central Wisconsin are transported to a warehouse for preparation to be shipped overseas.
