CWS Kits

CHURCH WORLD SERVICE KITS 

Can be gathered, assembled and sent year round!

Here's How:
1.       ASSEMBLE KITS
  • Contents are listed at www.cwsglobal.org/kits
  • Contents have been selected with care based on years of experience so please follow the instructions exactly.  (Extraneous donations would surely be welcomed at local ministries.)
  • Please remove excess packaging 

2.       PACK THE ASSEMBLED KITS IN BOXES

  • Pack the kits in boxes with lids (separate boxes for school and hygiene kits), marked with the name and address of your church and the kind and number of kits inside. SEAL THE BOXES!
  • Buckets should just have the name and address of your church.  You may write these right on the bucket, or tape a paper with this information onto the top of the bucket.

3.       BRING THEM TO a drop off location (TBD) or drop them off at:

Elgin Brethren Center
Church of the Brethren General Office
1451 Dundee Ave.
Elgin, IL 60120
Office: 1-800-323-8039

Mon. – Fri: 8 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
 
4.       BRING A CHECK
5.       REPORT TO PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN IN BLACKHAWK
      After you have completed your kits project for the year, please email Jill Sunday with your kit totals. And Thank You!
