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.


This is the fun part! Now its time to assemble the CWS Kits. Maybe you could even host a kit assembly party?


When you share a CWS Hygiene Kit, you show a tremendous amount of love and support to our neighbors around the world. CWS will share these kits on your behalf to communities in need.

“Our packing party with our confirmation class was a huge success—12 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 highly recommend the Welcome Backpacks.”
