Important Change – New policy regarding BULK-soap and Fleece Blankets

LWR will stop accepting BULK-soap that is not part of a kit. Soap should still be included in baby care and personal care kits. There have been fewer requests for bulk-soap by our partners and they are sourcing soap within their country, which is good for local economies. If you have already collected bulk-soap, please donate that soap to local organizations and shelters that can utilize it immediately.

LWR will no longer accept Fleece Blankets. They have received information that fleece causes environmental concerns, so we will discontinue the collection of fleece blankets. Please donate any completed fleece blankets to a local shelter, hospital or nursing home.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your kindness and generosity.
