Albion, Michigan, Church Makes School Kits for Storm Survivors

Albion Youth Group

The youth at our small church took on the huge task of putting together 30 School Kits to help children who lost their schools and places of education through the storms and floods.  Our children, who call themselves "Helping Hands," collected change from the congregation every Sunday morning and then decided how to put the money to good use.  Church World Service School Kits became one of their projects.  Here are the children and School Kits, along with youth teachers Diana Wade and Susie Heilser, who sewed the bags, and Pastor Loree Grinnell who brought this project to our attention.
