Fun and Fellowship Packing OGT Christmas Boxes

Karen Mangels, international transportation director and Chris Carstens, inventory manager organized a Thrivent Action Team event which included other OGT staff and family to make OGT Christmas Gift Boxes. Each staff member brought items for the gift boxes and the Thrivent seed money purchased additional needed items. It was a fun and rewarding project for all with tacos being served afterwards. The Christmas Gift Boxes also include the story of Jesus’ birth to be shared with children around the world that may not have the ability to celebrate Christmas. If you are interested in doing a Christmas Gift Box project please call OGT toll free at 877-371-7393. The boxes need to be completed and delivered to an OGT location by September 1 for a Christmas delivery. Thank you for sharing the gift of Jesus with others.
