Historic Day For OGT Michigan Branch

February 8, 2019 was an historic day for Orphan Grain Train—Michigan. Through the bounty coming from God’s people, a first distribution was made of 285 “flood buckets” containing cleanup supplies much needed in southeast Ohio which experienced flooding. The relief items were sent to H.A.R.P. (Helping Appalachian Rural Peoples), an organization which meets basic needs when family lives are adversely impacted and interrupted. The delivery was done in cooperation with the Ohio Branch of OGT which provided transportation.
