Stories Bring Tears to Our Eyes

As of August 15, 2014, Orphan Grain Train has given out over $80,000.00 to northeast Nebraska tornado victims. The families have shared how they lost everything except the clothes on their back. They recount the horrors of living through the tornado, huddled in their basements while their houses are lifted off the foundations and then looking up into the blackened sky. Orphan Grain Train is committed to giving 100% of donations to the northeast Nebraska tornado victims. OGT has also delivered 21- forty-foot security storage units to tornado victims to lock up their salvaged possessions. There is still much that needs to be done for the families that lost everything; homes, cars, and belongings in the tornadoes last June. If you would like to donate to Nebraska tornado victims, please designate on the check and mail to Orphan Grain Train P.O. Box 1466 Norfolk, NE 68702 or go online to www.ogt.org. Thank you for your support.
