Lutheran World Relief (LWR) is a ministry of U.S. Lutherans serving communities living in poverty overseas, whose mission is stated succinctly as “Affirming God’s love for all people, we work with Lutherans and partners around the world to end poverty, injustice, and human suffering.”
Every fall, Lower Susquehanna Synod congregations participate in our synod’s LWR Ingathering appeal by collecting and making Mission Quilts, Personal, School, Fabric, and/or Baby Care Kits. Additionally, some congregations choose to collect new bars of soap or donate money to help ship these items to the areas of the world where they are needed most.
Trinity’s Quilters make about 120 quilts a year and for the past three years have collected enough money to pay for the shipment of all our quilts to areas of need.
