All year long Wooden Cross Lutheran Church “Stitchers,” a small group of seamstresses, spend countless hours donating their time and talent to sewing patchwork quilts for Project Comfort.  Sent overseas to people in need, these lovely, colorful quilts bring warmth on a cold night and shelter from the sun on a hot day.  An individual quilt may be used as a bed, a room divider, a backpack to carry belongings, and at times, even a home. 


Wooden Cross members also purchase and assemble layettes, health kits and school kits to be distributed to countries ravaged by war and natural disasters.  Ordinary items, like toothbrushes and towels, pencils and paper are turned into tangible symbols of extraordinary love for people who may feel they have been forgotten by the world.  In general, Wooden Cross collects and ships school kits and quilts in the Fall, and health kits and layettes in the Spring.  Collections are determined by the current needs of Lutheran World Relief.
