You are invited to buy diapers

Diapering Detroit

Women of the ELCA groups are invited to join ELCA youth in collecting diapers for their in-kind gifts to Detroit.

Connect with young people in your congregation who are going to the 2015 ELCA Youth Gathering to find out how you can help. Perhaps a gift of money would be easiest for the youth to carry. If so, they could buy diapers in Detroit and help its economy. Read the article from the March issue of Gather magazine.

 If your congregation is not sending youth to the gathering, you might connect with a gathering synod coordinator (www.elca.org/gathering) to find a congregation near you that is. At the request of youth in your congregation, you can send a check made out to Women of the E LCA with “Youth Gathering–diapers” in the memo line to ELCA Gift Processing Center, P.O. Box 1809, Merrifield, VA 22116-8009. You also can ship the diapers directly to Immanuel Lutheran Church, 13031 Chandler Park Drive, Detroit, Mich., 48213.
