Oktoberfest In May

What an amazing Oktoberfest at OGT! Thank you to everyone that came out to make it special and festive! So far we have raised over $5,500.00 for the Norfolk Area Big Give! Thank you to our generous supporters for helping to fund our future with bringing OGT and Mercy Meals together in one location.
The Big Give ends at midnight tonight so there is still time to donate. Please go to https://norfolkareabiggive.org/non…/orphan-grain-train-inc or you can donate at www.ogt.org
The expansion and bringing together of OGT and Mercy Meals will help serve even more children and families in need.

Big Give Donations will help fund our future.  A new Servant Center will bring Mercy Meals and Orphan Grain Train together in one location.  This is important because it will help increase Mercy Meals production to fight world hunger also OGT is out growing its current warehouse space.  We have more than doubled our yearly shipping percent since 2015; OGT delivered $47.2 million worth of aid in 2020 compared to $23 million delivered in 2015.  The increased warehouse space will ensure continued growth to serve even more children and families in need worldwide.

We hope to see you at Oktoberfest in May!
