 2022 Arizona Quilt and Kit Ingathering

Saturday, April 30, 2022 – 9 am to 12 pm

Atonement Lutheran Church, 4001 W. Beardsley Rd, Glendale AZ 85308

LWR first distributed its quilts in 1945 to families in war-torn Europe following WWII.  Today, an average of 300,000 quilts are given annually.  This is our opportunity to gather up all of the LWR quilts, and kits (school kits, personal care kits, baby care kits, fabric kits) we’ve made and get them on their journey to a LWR warehouse, where they are repackaged and distributed globally.  Please remember to follow instructions for packing and labeling from LWR.  Do not pack anything in plastic or paper bags.  Everything must arrive at the Ingathering properly boxed and labeled.  Don’t mix items; use separate boxes for each group (quilts, specific kit types).  All boxes need to be securely taped and properly labeled.  Boxes should not weight more than 40 lb.  Visit http://lwr.org/quilts/resources for more information.  Or, contact our AZ LWR Ingathering Coordinator, Laura Krueger.

If you need to contact the church for an appointment if a different drop day is needed, contact Ellen Born, Site Coordinator at Atonement:  church@atonemenlc.org or call 623-582-8785

Plan now for a Quilt & Kit Blessing Sunday to get your items on their way.  Thank you!

We’ve included a clickable link to a summary of actions taken at the recent 11th Triennial Convention of Women of the ELCA:

Women of the ELCA opts for a smaller, more inclusive executive board – Women of the ELCA

We suggest that every Tuesday at noon, all women engage in a community of prayer across our entire Women of the ELCA community.  Our churchwide WELCA has written a prayer meditation for your use.  You can download it, print it, share it across your community of women.
