340 Boxes of Aid Delivered

Steve Rice coordinator for OGT’s California-Arizona-Nevada Collection Center recently delivered 340 boxes of bedding, clothing, hygiene kits, stuffed toys, school backpacks and supplies, and sewing machines with fabric to Rev. Ramon Contreras with Lutheran Border Concerns Ministry. Rev. Contreras says it is always like Christmas when OGT comes! Some of the goods made a fabulous day for their breakfast center kids and family members from San Pablo Lutheran in Tijuana. Everyone helped fill backpacks and the kids were surprised to learn they were for them! What a fun day and thank you OGT donors for making this special day possible!
