LWML Toolkits are kit suggestions that you may use for Gifts from the Heart collections in your district, zone, and local groups. Be sure everyone knows where your kits will be donated before you start collecting items. It is suggested that agencies be contacted to make sure they are able to take the kits, if there are items they are not allowed to include, and how many kits they may currently need. Different agencies may also request certain items to better serve their clients. This Teacher Kit list is simply a “jumping off” point to use as you share God’s love and serve the Lord with Gladness.
Remember that men teach also! Keep kits gender-neutral when personal care items are included.
