“Don’t forget to do good and share with those in need.”

How it Works
Assembling CWS Kits is an easy way to share your love with others and have a fun experience with your family and friends.
Select your favorite kit and set a goal for how many kits you would like to assemble.
Invite others to help you purchase the supplies for the kits. With some thrifty shopping, you can assemble a kit for a lot less. Don’t forget to look online for some of the best deals.
This is the fun part! Now its time to assemble the CWS Kits. Maybe you could even host a kit assembly party?
Following your collection, the CWS Kits can be dropped off at a CWS Kit Depot or simply mail them to our warehouse.
We will share your kits right away and they will provide a little piece of hope when someone needs it most.
You are part of the miracle.

"It's a miracle what Church World Service does, and you’re a part of that miracle.”
- Rev. Dr. Timothy C. Ahrens
“Backpacks were distributed to clients from Syria, Afghanistan, Honduras and Ukraine. The clients were thrilled to have school supplies in the week before school started and repeatedly thanked CWS staff for preparing them for the upcoming school year. Some clients are starting first grade, others twelve, and some community college. The ages ranged from 3 to 19! Everyone needs notebooks, pens and pencils, and were excited and ready to learn.”
- Nora Salitan, Volunteer Coordinator, Church World Service, Jersey City, NJ
"We look at the CWS Clean Up Buckets as our faithfulness. It’s our faith in action, that we pack these buckets and we send them off. We don’t know who they are going to, but we know they are going to someone. And that’s just an incredible way that the Spirit prompts us to act. And what I think is great about the buckets is that they are ready to go long before a disaster hits. So when that disaster hits we have an immediate response."
- Rev. Terry Kukuk, Executive Presbyter of the Presbytery of the Miami Valley
“Our packing party with our confirmation class was a huge success—12 Welcome Backpacks filled in 25 minutes! This mission project was so popular with the children, we're hoping to fill 12 more backpacks sometime this summer. If churches are looking for a new mission project that is not only fun, but also makes a difference, I would high recommend the Welcome Backpacks.”
- Amy Fraizer, St Thomas Episcopal Church, Christiansburg, VA
“To all the volunteers, the donors of Church World Service: God bless you! You are bringing hope to people that are hopeless, people that feel so disenfranchised. Keep doing what you are doing because you are making a difference.”
- Shirlyn Thomas, Co-Pastor, God’s Kingdom and Restoration Ministries Galveston, Texas
