LWML Grants Received to Help With Shipping and Domestic Relief

Orphan Grain Train recently received grants from two Lutheran Women’s Missionary League districts. We received a grant of $9,000 from the LWML Central Illinois District, which has been used to help cover the cost of shipping relief supplies for victims of the war in Ukraine. A grant of $4,000 was received from the LWML Southern Illinois District, which has been used to help cover domestic relief costs. We are thankful for these grants. We appreciate them very much, & we value our partnership with the LWML.
