A Season of Hope

Kathy Spenhoff

This Lent, Announce to the World that Christ Makes a New Season Possible: A Season of Hope!

This Lenten season, you are invited to reach out to our neighbors in the most fragile corners of the world and in the most challenging circumstances. Assembled from common household items, Personal Care Kits help people in crisis to feel human. To feel loved. To feel that someone cares.

This Lent, Holy Cross is joining Lutheran World Relief in a SEASON OF HOPE to announce to the world the HOPE of Christ. We will be collecting items for personal care kits to help people around the world in challenging situations with tools to stay healthy, feel loved and know that someone cares.

You can bring your personal care kit items to the church office (Mon-Thur 10 AM – 4 PM)  and  we’ll pack them for you! Let Kathy Spenhoff know when you drop them off. We will extend the deadline to April 30 for you to get your items in to us before we ship them out. 

We hope to provide at least 50 completed personal care kits.

Each kit to contain:

1new light/ med-weight bath towel (dark colors)

2 bars of bath-size soap in original wrapping

1 adult size toothbrush in original wrapping

1 new sturdy comb, remove packaging

1 new metal nail clipper, remove packaging


 Please see the detailed assembly instruction sheets available in the narthex
