Thrivent Action Team Event and Lunch Enjoyed By Staff and Families

Layette kits are just one of the many requested kits from OGT and Suzie Leffers, Public Relations Director recently put together a Thrivent Action Team event for the OGT staff, spouses and children. During a lunch hour, 18 layette kits were put together then everyone enjoyed a soup and salad luncheon at OGT office. Thank you, Thrivent, for the seed money to purchase most of the items and to those that helped put them together. It was a fun event to help serve those in need worldwide.
