LWR Quilts & Kits Boxcar In-Gathering

September 14, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am

September 14, 2019 from  7:00 am – 11:00 am

Location:  Southern Wisconsin Railroad Station, 1890 East Johnson Street, Madison

It’s in September not in October this year!   So please put this date on your calendars and you may want to get the word out to your LWR kit and quilt ministry teams.  And we know a lot of you display the quilts in your sanctuaries prior to the boxcar loading, so you may want to notify your worship team about the change in the date too!

For instructions on how to pack your Hospice and Newborn Kits, Bandages, Quilts, see the LWR website: https://lwr.org/quilts-and-kits

Remember to use the LWR Quilt & Kit tracker to see where your precious cargo and gifts of love go and who they help.  The LWR Quilt  & Kit Tracker is one way LWR tries to make the world between us a little bit smaller, by connecting the tireless efforts of people who make quilts and assemble kits with the people around the world  who receive them with joy and gratitude.  These pictures speak 1,000 words!

“Predominantly we are loading quilts, but there are kits as well.   The neat thing is all the care and love and effort that goes into these quilts and kits.  It’s amazing how it all happens.”
