Quilt Assembly

During the 2023 Lenten Season, members of Salem began to assemble quilts for Lutheran World Relief.  90 quilts were made altogether. 18 quilts were purchased by members, with the funds going towards next year's materials and shipping costs.  The remaining 72 quilts were bundled and transported to the LWR warehouse in St. Paul.  Way to Go, Salem!!!

Take my hands and let them move at the impulse of thy love.

LWR Quilts

Often, when natural disasters strike or war drives families from their homes, our hearts ache with compassion but we don’t know how to help. If you’ve wondered how to volunteer to quilt for charity, look no further. Making Lutheran World Relief Mission Quilts is a tangible way to express love to our neighbors in need. Quilts can be used as warm bedding, simple tents or floor coverings. Each one reflects God's loving presence in a world rife with suffering.

FACT: The first LWR quilts were delivered to families in Western Europe post-World War ll. The quilt and kit ministry is Lutheran World Relief’s oldest program.
