Norfolk warehouse had four energetic volunteers from Zion Lutheran Church in Fremont, Wisconsin helping all week. They packed School Kits and Hygiene Kits, unloaded a truck of donations that will be going to Cebu, Philippines, prepared a wall for painting, hung an OGT outdoor sign and other warehouse to-do items. Yesterday they helped load a shipment for Managua, Nicaragua with 960 boxes of clothes, 22 folding chairs, 35 boxes of hygiene kits, medical equipment, bicycles, two solar ovens, office/school desks, chairs and sewing machines with sewing supplies. OGT staff prepared and served lunches for them and other volunteers to say “thank you”.
