5th Container Loaded and Off to Puerto Rico

January 4th the Indiana Branch volunteers were busy loading the 5th container for Puerto Rico; shipping costs were paid from OGT’s Hurricane Relief Fund. The container was purchased and will remain in Puerto Rico to be used for storage. The volunteers loaded quilts, Bibles, hymnals, shoes, clothes, coats, new socks and undies, cleaning kits/supplies, 57,024 processed food packages (Love the Hungry) and hygiene kits for our recipient Centro Cristiano Gracia Y Verdad Inc. Puerto Ricans are still drastically affected by Hurricane Maria; approximately 55% of electricity has been restored. This means hand washing clothes, challenges cooking food and no running water, hot water or lights for more than 3 months. Thank you to our volunteers and donors for helping with another shipment to Puerto Rico. Please continue to pray for the children and families devastated by Hurricane Maria.
