Supplies Needed for Flood Victims in Louisiana
The flooding in Louisiana is devastating and OGT is preparing to ship needed items for disaster relief. OGT’s Norfolk warehouse (located in Norfolk, NE) and some of the other OGT regional locations will be shipping needed supplies. Please contact your local OGT site to see if they are planning to ship to the disaster area. If you are not able to donate needed items and would like to help, please consider a monetary donation for OGT to purchase some of the necessary supplies or to help pay shipping expenses. The items requested for flood clean up and rebuilding are:
3M first aid kits
Gallon Ziploc bags for volunteer lunches
Nonperishable snacks such as energy bars
Bottled water-16 ounce size for volunteers
Fork, knife, spoon and napkin packs
Diapers and baby supplies
New underwear in plastic packs
New socks in plastic packs
Rubber Maid waterproof storage containers
Box cutters and blades
Mold killer - borax (1 cup per gallon of warm water will kill mold)
The destruction from the flooding is so widespread and many homes destroyed that it will be a long term clean up and rebuilding of the disaster area. If you would like to send a monetary donation or donate on line then please designate it to “Louisiana Flood”. You can mail donations to: Orphan Grain Train P.O. Box 1466 Norfolk, NE 68701 or online at www.ogt.org.

Sometimes that character expresses itself as a word well spoken, sometimes as a bandage well applied, and sometimes as a child well fed.
