CWS LogoWe are hosting a Church World Service (CWS) Kit Assembly Project at Camp Christian on Sunday, September 9th.

We will have a worship service at 12:30pm with the project starting around 1:00pm.

We will need supplies to make the kits (details here), monetary donations to make sure we have supplies to complete the kits and for CWS to ship them, and people to physically be at Camp to assemble the kits.

You can RSVP and/or Donate to the project by clicking HERE!

Every penny donated to this will go to the Kits and Church World Service.

Church World Service Kits & Buckets


As part of their outreach mission, Church World Service (CWS) and their volunteers assemble and distribute small kits & buckets of disaster relief supplies to families and communities in need around the world. After 2017’s difficult hurricane season, we’ve seen how valuable the CWS kits/buckets are to families in crisis. In 2017 CWS distributed 243,952 kits, buckets & blankets globally, with 137,414 of those being distributed in the United States and Puerto Rico.


From now until September 14th, the Christian Church in Ohio and Camp Christian will be collecting completed kits, buckets and/or monetary donations for Church World Service at Camp Christian. There will be space set up in the Rec Hall at Camp for the donations. If you are dropping off a monetary donation in person, be sure to hand that directly to Al or Donna Channell so that it can be properly processed. Checks may be made to Church World Service.


The details and packing instructions for all of the CWS kits/buckets can be found at https://cwskits.org/assemble-kits/


While the School Kits and Cleanup Buckets are also accepted and appreciated, the greatest need right now is Hygiene Kits. When people are forced to abruptly leave their homes, they usually aren’t able to pack the things they use on a daily basis like toothbrushes or soap. But after a few days without these items, they definitely miss them! Your Hygiene Kits give people the refreshing boost they need each day!


If you are going to be dropping off donations at Camp, be sure to do so NO LATER than 4pm on September 14th since I’ll be making a trip to the CWS drop off depot in Westerville first thing the next morning.

 

ALSO, we will be hosting a Kit Assembly Project at Camp on Sunday, September 9th. We will have a worship service at 12:30pm with the project starting around 1:00pm. We will need supplies to make the kits (details here), monetary donations to make sure we have supplies to complete the kits and for CWS to ship them, and people to physically assemble the kits. An online RSVP and/or donation is set up at http://ccinoh.org/events_details.aspx?id=421

 

There will be several drop off sites around Ohio over the next few weeks if you or your Congregation would like to assemble buckets and/or kits locally. Click HERE for a list of Drop Off Depots around Ohio. Most depots have specific dates and hours, and some are one day only. Be sure to contact any location before you plan to drop off your donations.

 

If you would like to contribute, but you cannot get to Camp or one of these Drop Off Depots, you can always make monetary donations directly to Church World Service for buckets/kits as well at the following website. https://cwskits.org/donate/

 

If any of this is unclear or you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

 

Thank you for your prayerful consideration to assist with this important mission!!  From those who find their homes flooded or destroyed by disasters to kids who just want to succeed in school, you’re giving hope and a means to survive!

 

Peace and God Bless,
