OGT Employees Have Fun Packing Hygiene kits and School Kits for a Thrivent Action Team Event

During today’s lunch hour, the staff and one spouse from OGT’s home office and Norfolk warehouse put together 30 school kits and 16 hygiene kits. These were both part of a Thrivent Action Team event and will be shipped to Bread of Life orphanage in Romania next week. Afterward everyone enjoyed pizza and ice cream with many toppings. What wonderful food, fun and fellowship shared to help many children in Romania.
