Many Grateful for Blessings

On March 1st, 2018 it was -4 degrees Fahrenheit when OGT recipient Fonds Saules Kalns unloaded a shipment by hand in Riga, Latvia. They shared words of gratitude for blankets/quilts/linens, clothes, coats, shoes, crutches, walkers, wheelchairs, stuffed toys, school kits and sewing supplies coming from Rocky Mountain Branch in Julesburg, CO. They also shared a personal story about Vitnija, an 18-year-old single mom with her one-year-old son, Alex struggling to have enough money for food and heat. They were able to place her in an apartment that was affordable with their assistance and OGT shipment provided clothing, toys, curtains, blankets, etc. for her apartment. They will continue to help her with food, diapers and other support as needed. Vitnija was very grateful for the gifts from OGT. Pictures are of local high school students and volunteers unloading in the frigid cold and also of Vitnija and Alex. There is a picture of a lady, Monika loading her van to share with people living with mental health issues and limited ability to support themselves. What wonderful stories of how one shipment of OGT donations impact so many lives.
