First Day of Boxing Donations for Michigan Branch

April 2, 2019 is a very special day at OGT’s Michigan Branch in Sebewaing, MI. It is the first day of actual boxing of donations that will go to help those in need. 116 quilts were boxed which were among those given by our first donors, women of St. John Lutheran Church, West Branch, MI, and Hope Lutheran, St. Helen, MI. Members of the pilot volunteer team working on this historic first day of operations included Karin, Rebecca, Katie, Fran, and Dave. Branch Manager, Dave Reed, applied the first label to the first box of thousands we hope will follow. Click below to learn more about the Michigan Branch.
