As we celebrate Thanksgiving and begin the Advent season, Milbank OGT Collection Center
THANKS GOD FOR HIS MANY BLESSINGS. With many volunteers from many
churches, LWML societies and various groups, we have been able to follow Christ’s example as a
servant and His love for all.
November 16th, the Norfolk OGT semi came to Milbank and picked up 21 pallets of clothing,
kits, and misc. items, 2 pallets of Mercy Meals along with 6 bikes.
September 19th we began to count individual kits, quilts along with the number of pallets.
September 19-November 16 187 Hygiene kits, 157, Layette kits, 42 school kits, 2 Teacher kits
and 195 quilts were packed and sent off.
In September we donated $8,500 to the Hawaiian Disaster Fund.
In October our annual Sausage and Sauerkraut Meal was held. We were able to send $3000
to the continued needs of many in Louisiana and West Virginia.
Volunteers continue to increase both onsite and off. Recently 9 friends got together to learn
about sleeping mats and cloth diapers. They will work at home and meet monthly at the OGT
building.
We will have 2 Christmas trees representing OGT at the Grant County House tree display
during December. State Line 4-H club and Emanuel Lutheran youth group will help “advertise”
for us.
We continue to pack Mercy Meals the 1st Wednesday morning of every month. There is an
open invitation for anyone to come and join us. Call 605-924-6831 to schedule a time for your
group.
So very thankful-Incredibly grateful – Unbelievably blessed. TO GOD BE THY GLORY!!!!
