Velda Rose Methodist Church in Mesa Donate Goods

OGT’s Phoenix Branch scored in a big way when the Velda Rose Methodist Church in Mesa, AZ was cleaning their warehouse. An OGT winter volunteer, Jane Ternus, (first pic) heard about them cleaning and giving items away. This church collects clothing and household items all year long and have two garage sales a year, February and October. The proceeds go to charities their church supports. After the February sale they get rid of almost everything and start all over with new donations. We filled five Gaylord bins thanks to Velda Rose. We are now on their calling list and will bring a U-Haul truck next year! We are so blessed. The next two photos are Phoenix volunteers Ken Weber and Allen Hobratschk (respectively).
