Midwest Mission Layette and School Kits
Missions Committee is collecting items for both the layette and school kits for Ingathering this fall. They could use a few more boxes of 24 crayons, boxes of 12 colored pencils, and student blunt (round tip) scissors to complete some school kits. Cloth bags with one handle would also be welcome. Click Patterns for cloth bags or see Dorothy Huse.

2 receiving blankets -28" x 28" to 32" x 32" (no crib blankets)
