july stewardship project - school kits

JULY STEWARDSHIP PROJECT -- Education is one of the strongest tools a community has for breaking the cycle of poverty. Ensuring that girls attend school, especially in places where their access is deprioritized, has even stronger results. School kits contain essential supplies to help children, and sometimes adults, continue learning in the face of serious obstacles. School kits will be our main focus in July. The items in these school kits will be available to help for a better life for them, their families and their communities. The following items are included in a complete kit:

  • Four 70-80 sheet spiral notebooks (280-300 sheets total) of wide or college-ruloed paper approximately 8" x 10.5": NO LOOSE LEAF PAPER
  • One 30-centimeters ruler, or a ruler with centimeters on one side and inches on the other
  • One pencil sharpener
  • One pair of blunt scissors
  • Five UNSHARPENED #2 pencils with eraser
  • Five Black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink)
  • One box of 16 or 24 crayons
  • One 2 1/2" eraser

If you don't have time to shop, just indicate "LWR School Kit" next to the amount you wish to donate on the outside of your offering envelopes during the month of July and we'll do the shopping for you.
