Occasional Services Books for Liberian Pastors
Pastors, if you have a copy of the Occasional Service Book and or similar items that you are no longer using, the Lutheran pastors in Liberia would be overjoyed to receive them. Check your church library.
Synod Assembly Service Project
All over the world girls miss an average of 5 days of school per month because of lack of access to feminine hygiene products. A group of quilters/sewers in several of our congregations have started making sustainable feminine hygiene kits for girls (the Days for Girls program). Many groups throughout the US are making these and they are distributed to girls in over 100 countries worldwide, providing them with health education and washable feminine hygiene kits.
We are accepting donations of Pre-washed 100% cotton fabric and 100% cotton flannel for the kits. The fabrics should have appealing colors and busy patterns to hide stains, such as botanicals, geometrics and batiks. For cultural reasons the fabrics may NOT have prints with faces, eyes, animals, insects, snakes, camouflage, guns, knives, hunting, words, cartoons, pop culture, national flags or girly-glam themes (butterflies and ladybugs without eyes are appropriate). Darker colors hide stains better.
Drawstring bags and shields – 100% cotton (1 yd will make 4 bags). Grosgrain Ribbon – 1/2” to 5/8” wide, minimum length 38”.
Flannel Liners – 100% cotton flannel.
