Where did they go in the World in 2020?

By Gail Terey, Coordinator

     Trinity Quilters

      Co-President, Trinity’s LWML

Lutheran World Relief (LWR) partners with trusted organizations around the world to receive and distribute quilts and kits that are donated to them from churches and organizations around the country.  They have warehouse facilities in Minnesota and Maryland where items are stored and then shipped from when there is a need.  Trinity’s quilts are loaded on a rental truck at St. John Fraser in October every year and then driven to the Maryland warehouse.  There are other collection points around Michigan and the country that do the same thing.  Established in 1945, LWR is jointly operated by several Lutheran Church bodies including the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
