250 Hours Volunteered Packing Christmas Boxes for 1300 Children Around the World

Kelly Asbury, who headed up the Christmas Gift Box project wanted to give an update plus a HUGE ‘Thank you” to ALL that was a part of this amazing project shared with OGT:
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! The response we received was truly amazing! Donations came in from all across the country. Many people went out of their way to send donations to help us reach our goal. Some made homemade doll blankets. Others ordered items needed and some mailed items they collected. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped sort donations, pack boxes, and transport finished boxes to Orphan Grain Train. Over 70 people spent more than 250 hours working on this project. Not only did we reach our goal, but we far surpassed it! We were able to pack 1300 Christmas boxes because of you. That’s 1300 children all around the world that will hear the Christmas story. That’s 1300 children who will receive a present, some for the first time in their lives. That’s 1300 children who know they matter because you took the time to send them a gift.
