Youth Come Together To Help OGT

Youth Come Together To Help OGT

LCMS Nebraska District Youth Gathering in Omaha, NE was a huge success for the students and OGT. This was an amazing gathering with hundreds of youth focused and energized to serve. OGT was involved with three of the servant events. Two of the events included students sorting clothes for winter and summer seasons and then packing the clothes into OGT boxes with labels. These two groups totaled about 375 students working hard to pack a total of about 1,700 boxes! These boxes of clothing will be shipped to children and families in need around the world. Another servant event included students bringing towels and washcloths to make hygiene kits with hygiene supplies donated by OGT. They then boxed those and prepared backpacks with school supplies donated from students. Another group of students helped to pack Mercy Meals which will be shipped by OGT to starving children in other countries. What an amazing group of students from all over Nebraska coming together for one cause; to help others in desperate need around the world, and all for the love of Jesus.
