Are you interested in giving kids an opportunity this summer to help meet physical and spiritual needs of children around the world?
Lifeway Christian Stores will partner with Baptist Global Response this year to feature the missions project in their Vacation Bible School materials. The project is called “Kits for Kids” and will involve U.S. churches and VBS groups collecting/packing basic school supplies in 2.5 gallon re-sealable bags. These educational kits will be mailed by churches to a warehouse in Virginia, and from there shipped out to various parts of the world for distribution to kids in need of these basic school items.
There are millions of children around the world who are unable to attend school because their families cannot afford the basic supplies required. Others live in areas recently struck by disasters which render the supplies unavailable. Providing these simple school items will not only meet the physical needs required for education, but will also give missionaries and national partners an opportunity to share the love of Christ with these children and their families as the supplies are distributed.
Here’s where camps can help: funds are needed to cover shipping expenses to transport the Kits for Kids from Virginia to their destinations around the globe. Would you prayerfully consider designating the camp offerings to help cover the cost of shipping these kits? Perhaps this could be an emphasis of the camp, to challenge Kids who Care (campers) to connect with Kids in Need (children overseas).
Your camps can be a part of this exciting project! For more information visit the website www.vbskitsforkids.com or contact Baptist Global Response at this address:
