General Instructions: Please give new items only except where otherwise noted. Quality items also withstand the harsh conditions that many people who receive these supplies are facing.

Please do not donate items with religious symbols, messages or with your congregation's name. LWR provides quilts and kits based on need, regardless of religious creed. Religious references may be misinterpreted by governments of the reciving countries, jeopardizing delivery to the people who need the items most.

Please do not donate items decorated with a US Flag, patriotic or military symbols including camouflage. LWR has access to areas of the world others do not because they are an impartial humanitarian organization. If intentions are misinterpreted as being politically motivated, their work and the people they assist could be endangered.
