Lutheran women collect stamps
Members of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League in Marion and surrounding areas in Kansas are collecting used postage stamps. The stamps are sent to Texas where they are sorted and sold to stamp collector dealers through a bidding process.
The money collected from the Stamporee Project is used to help pay shipping costs of sending quilts and relief kits to other countries.
According to missions chairman Ruth Lange, all kinds of stamps are acceptable including Forever stamps, except those with the Liberty Bell on them. Pre-sort stamps on mail advertising also are acceptable. For people who wish to donate stamps, each stamp must be cut out allowing a one-fourth inch margin all around.
Individuals may deliver the stamps to Marion Senior Center for collection.
