Donate to Houston Branch


Houston has been busy this past year laying the groundwork for the building of a 12,000 sq ft servant center which will allow for storage of donated items with a reception and sorting area. Also two rooms are designated to house relief workers, when needed. Restrooms with showers will also be available inside the Servant Center.

Groundbreaking will be held Sunday, May 7th 2023 at 2:00pm 
Location: 5050 E. Sam Houston Parkway S. Pasadena, TX 77505
Currently working out of two containers – one for receiving and one for storing boxes ready for shipment.  With the container full we look forward to our first international shipment to aid Ukrainians will hopefully be by May.
Churches and individuals within the greater Houston area and as far away as 200 miles in Texas have shown amazing support with donations of blankets, clothes, medical supplies.  We are thankful for the calls and deliveries which come from across town…Houston is wide-spread, so deliveries can be a multi-hour gift of time.
There have been multiple groups, individuals, and numerous churches along with Lutheran South Academy (LSA) who have helped during sorting & packing days.  Recently LSA scheduled high school students to participate in different service projects for non-profits in Houston.  OGT was blessed to watch over 50 teenagers, and staff, tape, count items, pack and label boxes.
We trust in God’s perfect timing on the shipment and construction of the Servant Center. He has provided exciting blessings and solutions at every turn, for which we give Him thanks and glory!
