Atonement supports many “glocal” (global and local) missions. Each fall we focus on collecting school supplies for those in need. These supplies are given to Lutheran World Relief and to All Peoples Church, Milwaukee, WI.
School Kits Given Globally to Lutheran World Relief:
Why school supplies? To the children who receive School Kits, these supplies mean the difference between getting an education or not. Public school is usually free, but in the places where LWR works, even a few required supplies, like pens and paper, may be more than many families can afford.
And when parents can only afford to send one of their children to school, girls rarely get priority…yet the education level of mothers has the biggest impact on a child’s development.
Sips for School Kits
The Mary/Martha WELCA Circle is sponsoring a wine, beer and bourbon tasting to raise funds for supplies needed to assemble School Kits for LWR. This event is open to the entire community. Please invite your friends, coworkers and neighbors! Or surprise your spouse with a date night!
