Second Delivery Full of Blessings
Highland Lakes Texas Collection Center became a certified OGT collection station last year and purchased a trailer. Since then they have filled it up twice and delivered to the Mexican border. Terry and Bonnie Norman are members who drive the trailer to the border. The pictures are volunteers sending the trailer off to Mexico filled with blankets/quilts, linens, clothes, shoes, hygiene kits, medical equipment, stuffed toys and school supplies. Thank you to the volunteers for sorting, packing and loading all these wonderful donations. (1-2016)
