Two Texas Missions Benefit from Shipments

Recently Wisconsin Branch shipped two domestic loads of supplies and food. The first load was filled with hygiene supplies, stuffed toys, school supplies and backpacks, quilts, blankets, linens, clothing, shoes and 10 pallets of potatoes and 1 pallet of edible beans for Mission Emanuel in Mercedes, Texas. The second load went to Latin American Lutheran Mission (LALM) in Laredo, Texas loaded with similar items and sleeping mats, furniture, household items and 2 pallets of edible beans and 2 pallets of fresh vegetables. The potatoes, beans and vegetables from both shipments were purchased with funds from three OGT locations; Wisconsin Branch, MN South Branch and MN North Collection Center. ‘Thank you’ to the volunteers and donors that helped with these two amazing shipments of gifts for children and families in need.
