One of our international recipients wrote the following note of ‘Thank You’ and included several photos of aid shipped from OGT’s Central Iowa Branch and shared with residents at a nursing home. We are so blessed to be a blessing to others – Thank You Central Iowa donors and volunteers!
“We have a lot of beneficiaries who are constantly in need of help. Before receiving cargo, I have a written plan where to visit and distribute the boxes. These are daycare centers for the elderly, shelters for the elderly and for people with disabilities. Today I visited the nursing home of the Evangelical-Lutheran elderly shelter for the second time. The elderly remember good guests especially well. I gave them a wheelchair, canes, a lot of medical supplies, a shower chair, linen, blankets, towels, clothes. Today, when everything has become expensive, every item is valuable for them. I did not leave the shelter staff without gifts. I captured their happy faces on photos. They sent you lots of thanks and love for those amazing gifts.
Thank you for being and caring for strangers.”
