Navy Junior ROTC Help Out OGT
In early 2017 Immanuel First Lutheran Church in Covina, CA held a collection event with the support of LWML Pacific Southwest District providing hygiene kits, knitted caps, sundresses, clothing, quilts, blankets, diaper kits, and eyeglasses totaling approximately 300 boxes for OGT's CA-AZ-NV Site supporting mission projects along the border of Mexico. Thank you to Lutheran High school’s Navy Junior ROTC unit packing and loading boxes three years in a row now. What a great bunch of young adults helping out and serving our Lord.(11-2017)

4 Domestic Shipments Delivered
In October 2016, OGT’s California-Arizona-Nevada Collection Center shipped four domestic loads containing blankets, quilts, pillowcase dresses, clothing accessories, diapers, and sewing machines. Two of the loads went to Building Generations in Chula Vista, CA and the other two went to Lutheran Border Concerns Ministry in San Diego, CA. Thank you to our donors and volunteers for your time and hard work with sorting, packing and loading.(11/2016)

Undie Sunday Drive- February 14, 2016
We would like to update you on our collection effort for 2016.  These are the letters and emails that were sent out to most churches, LWML chapters and also to the LCMS Pacific Southwest District that is in the District weekly newsletter. These have been delivered throughout all California, Arizona and Nevada. Even the Oregon LWML district and zones have picked up on this and have contacted me to offer support. (1-2016)
Thank you,

School Desks for Children
OGT’s California-Arizona-Nevada Collection Center located in Lancaster, CA delivered a teacher’s school desk, student chairs and desks to Lutheran Border Concerns Ministry. The ministry helps those in need spiritually and physically by building churches, schools and homes south of the border. The school desks will be blessings for so many small children. (7-2015)
