LWR Kits – Collect Now

A meaningful way to make a difference
Introducing Project Promise: Build Kits of Care – a perfect way for you to gather a group of people you know and turn ordinary items into extraordinary gifts. You can help people dealing with some of life’s most difficult situations –the aftermath of earthquakes and floods, fleeing home to escape violence and living in extreme poverty. 2017 Kits will be taken to Monroe the first week in October.
