Local and World Community Involvement


  • Lutheran World Relief (LWR) Health Kits. The Dorcas Quilters (see them on our Groups page) not only provide quilts to LWR (over 300 each year), but also collect items for these Health Kits, which include one of each of the following:
    • Hand towel
    • Wash cloth
    • Bath-size soap in its wrapper
    • Toothbrush in its wrapper
    • Toothpaste (unwrap packaging)
    • Wide-tooth comb
    • Metal nail file or nail clipper with file
    • Six (6) 1/2" x 3/4" band-aids
  • Used eyeglasses for Lions' Club
  • Christmas Angel gifts
  • Lutheran Social Services of Illinois: Prison Ministry - personal care kits
  • Occasional mission trips to the Bridge Ministry in Nashville, Tennessee. An intergenerational group of 16 participated in 2012 and felt the experience was eye-opening and inspiring. According to youth member Graciela, "I found out that children get hungry, too."
