CHICK-FIL-A SERVICE TOUR

On June 7, four local Chick-Fil-A restaurants joined together to offer their customers an opportunity for service. They hired buses and transported these volunteers to 3 local charities.  The last service stop was the Orphan Grain Train warehouse at 621 East West Blvd. in Millersville. There, workers sorted and boxed clothing, helped with grounds-keeping, and cut fabric for girls’ hygiene kits. The 96 volunteers learned about the ministry of OGT and then enjoyed a chicken nuggets meal on the grounds. OGT Maryland Branch was honored to partner with Chick-Fil-A on their 2019 Service Tour.
