Here’s a short video of our students at work at the LuoPad event
Would you help us on Friday?
This Friday, as a part of Cru’s Justice Week, we’re going to help make re-useable feminine pads to distribute to refugees in the Middle East and beyond. If you’re in Boston on Friday, we’d love to have you join us. If not, we’d love you to pray for this outreach.
On Friday from 3-9pm, we’re hosting a drop-in service project at Park Street Church where students (and you if you’re interested) can come and cut out the pieces of “LuoPads.”
LuoPads are washable feminine pads that are part of a “LuoPack” of women’s hygiene items (6 LuoPads, 2 pair of underwear, a washcloth, washing instructions, a waterproof bag, all in a privacy bag).
These meet a huge need for women and girls in refugee camps and remote areas who, because they lack access to hygiene items, must stay home from work or school for up to 20% of each month, significantly limiting their opportunities.

The outreach is an opportunity for Cru students to invite their friends who might not share our love for Jesus, but who do share a love for the vulnerable across the world. Serving together in a tangible way can build relationships and provide bridges for the gospel.
3 Ways to help:
- Join us on Friday at Park Street Church – If you’re in the Boston area and free anytime between 3 and 9 for a half hour, come say hi. Send me a text 978-828-8024 to confirm that you’re coming so I know to be looking for you.
- Donate used terrycloth towels or flannel. If you’re in the Boston area, it can be dropped off this week anytime to Park Street Church. If you’re outside the Boston area, and think this is something you’d like to participate in, let me know and I can connect you with our friends at Gain, Cru’s humanitarian arm.
- Pray. Would you pray that we would be able to have some great conversations around God’s heart for justice this week.
Thank you all so much for your partnership with us in ministry.
Loving our Adventurous Lord,
