Great things happen in the Lutheran schools of the South Wisconsin District and I want to be able to share these. If you have something you feel is worth sharing, email me at
freeFree at Last Ministry
Free at Last Ministry is a mission outreach of the South Wisconsin District that serves recently released inmates from the House of Correction. As part of this outreach, the program provides backpacks that are filled with essential toiletries for men. In a recent visit to Free at Last, I found out that supplies for these backpacks are quite low. Please look at the list below and if you desire, encourage classrooms to collect some of these items. If you have questions on this mission, please contact Patrick Batom, Program Director, at
Items can be delivered to the SWD office or I can arrange to have them picked up.
Blessings to you as we enter the season of Lent.
Items Needed:
Wash cloth
Granola Bar
