The 2012 Lutheran World Relief pickup for donations from area churches will be April 28 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Fort Dodge.
Approximately 60 Lutheran churches will be bringing health kits, layettes, fabric, soap and quilts to be shipped overseas. Iowa Central Community College will provide the truck to deliver the items to the warehouse in St. Paul. At the warehouse, items will be sorted and prepared for shipment to areas of need.
Expenses to get items where they are needed are paid by area Lutheran churches, which also provide quilts and human care items to local needs throughout the year.
