KITS AND MORE
CWC has distributed thousands of kits all over the world. The making of the kits provides a tangible way for your group to connect. We encourage you to look for places to provide kits on a local level (local homeless shelters, women’s shelters, new mothers, and food pantries, for example).
Kits can be as unique as the CWC chapter itself. They can be formed and distributed locally, or planned for throught the CWC National Office for international distribution. In the event of a special project or national disaster, the CWC National Office will announce specific needs or requests. Kits for overseas missions need to be arranged in advance through the CWC National Office in coordination with Global Strategy. This enables us to confirm the need and determine the shipping cost. Please do not send kits with food items to the national office, those kits are better distributed in your local community.
