BRING ITEMS TO CONVOCATION FOR THE THIRD WORLD DOWN THE STREET CARE KITS PROJECT

LTSP’s Seminarians Action Alert Network (S.A.A.N.) with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod of the ELCA and congregations are collecting care kit items and backpacks to distribute to our homeless neighbors throughout Philadelphia on April 16. Please consider joining us serving the “Third World Down the Street” by bringing the following items to convocation:

  • A large, gallon size zip closure bag with care kit items commonly needed for daily survival by someone experiencing homelessness
  • A card or note sharing your favorite scripture verse and expressing your love for the recipients of your care kits
  • Add a gift card to places like McDonald’s if you desire
  • Sturdy backpacks to collect your kits and aid in distribution
