CWS Kits are small packages of supplies assembled by volunteers and shipped to people in need around the world.

CWS provides CWS School Kits, Hygiene Kits, Baby Care Kits, and Emergency Cleanup Buckets. The contents of each kit have been selected with care based on years of experience to make them as useful as possible, wherever and whenever they are sent. 

How can I help?

Kits may be sent to CWS all year.  Each kit page provides a list of items to include, along with packing and shipping information to our collection centers in New Windsor, Md. and Little Rock, Ark. Some states have drop-off points at various times as well. 

Cash donations in lieu of assembled kits also help us to provide much-needed supplies.

Thank you for giving from the heart!  Your continuing support of this program is very important and helps to ensure CWS Kits are available for immediate response after a disaster.

If you have any questions, read our FAQs, or call your CWS Regional Office toll-free at 888-297-2767.
