Aid for Hawaii Volcano Victims
Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has destroyed hundreds of homes; families have lost everything and have to relocate to start over. Orphan Grain Train is accepting monetary donations to help families affected by the volcano. We are partnering with California Nevada Hawaii (CNH) District – Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, located in California to assist families devastated by the volcano. If you would like to donate online please click Donate Now button and choose the fund Hawaii Volcano Relief. Or you can mail in your donation earmarked for Hawaii Volcano Relief to Orphan Grain Train PO Box 1466 Norfolk, NE 68702. Thank you for supporting the disaster relief efforts of Orphan Grain Train.
Inventory is Low
Do You Have.....
Orphan Grain Train’s inventory of children and adult bicycles, school kits, hygiene kits and medical equipment that includes walkers, canes, crutches, commodes, wheelchairs, shower chairs, etc. is depleted. If you have any new or gently used bikes or medical equipment not being used we would love to be able to share those with people in need. Would you, your employer, a local organization, youth group, or congregation consider collecting items for school or hygiene kits? It is a fun and rewarding event which helps children and families less fortunate. If you are a Thrivent member you can apply for a Thrivent Action Team and the seed money goes toward purchasing supplies.

Thank you for your support of Orphan Grain Train missions.
The Great Need
In loving response to Christ, the Servant, the Orphan Grain Train movement encourages and enables God’s people to share personal and material resources in bringing Christ’s name and character to needy people both far and near. Sometimes that character expresses itself as a word well spoken, sometimes as a bandage well applied, and sometimes as a child well fed.
