For two days, more than 40 church members gathered to pack 1,000 care kits for Lutheran World Relief. The St. Armands church produces one-third of the care kits that are sent from Florida. Each kit is tracked, and this summer, the church will learn where the kits are delivered. Each kit contains a lightweight towel, soap, a toothbrush, comb and nail clipper.
