Kits for Kids
Are you interested in a hands-on project that will help the physical and spiritual needs of children around the world? One that would give you the opportunity to connect Kids Who Care with Kids In Need?
This summer Lifeway Christian Stores will partner with Baptist Global Response to feature the missions project in their Vacation Bible School materials. The project is called “Kits for Kids” and will involve U.S. churches and VBS groups in collecting/packing basic school supplies in 2.5 gallon re-sealable bags. These educational kits will be mailed by churches to a warehouse in Virginia, and from there shipped out to various parts of the world for distribution to kids in need of these basic school items.
There are millions of children around the world who are unable to attend school because their families cannot afford the basic supplies required. Others live in areas recently struck by disasters which render the supplies unavailable. Providing these simple school items will not only meet the physical needs required for education, but will also give missionaries and national partners an opportunity to share the love of Christ with these children and their families as the supplies are distributed.
Your Church can be a part of this exciting project! For more information visit the website www.vbskitsforkids.com
Please consider this opportunity to be the connection between Kids Who Care and Kids in Need!
