Lutheran World Relief
Lutheran World Relief is a nonprofit organization that helps families in the world’s poorest communities build the resilience they need to thrive. St. John supports Lutheran World Relief in several ways.
Every second Monday of the month, volunteers gather to assemble Mission Quilts. First and foremost, recipients use their LWR Quilts to shield against the cold and rain, and for warm bedding. But their versatility also makes Quilts useful as simple tents, floor coverings, or a wrap to hold a baby on a mother’s back. No sewing experience is needed for these quilts - they are tied with yarn!
St. John also supports LWR through funds gifted through our Endowment Fund.
