DO YOU HAVE LWR QUILTS & KITS TO DONATE?

Send them through an Ingathering!

Around the U.S., congregations, groups and individuals work tirelessly to donate thousands of Mission Quilts, Blankets, School Kits, Personal Care Kits, Baby Care Kits and Fabric Kits to Lutheran World Relief’s Quilt & Kit Ministry.

Ambassadors are short-term volunteers who open doors for our organization in the community, introducing new people at our bi-monthly Fostering Community Care event. These are one hour awareness events only (no solicitations are made) to expose people to the great work of LSS Community Care. To become an Ambassador here are your responsibilities:
  1. 1 – Attend at least one Fostering Community Care event during the calendar year
  2. 2 – Host or invite and bring 10-15 guests to one Fostering Community Care event within 3 months of your attending one yourself.
  3. 3 – Inform your invited guests of what the Fostering Community Care meeting will be about, and let them know that they will receive a follow up call from the organization
  4. 4 – Ambassadors will complete their commitment after bringing 10-15 persons within the 3 month time period. An Ambassador has the option to complete after one term, continue for another 3 month term or move into another role on the team.
