Water Tanker Helping Many Effected by Flooding

OGT’s water tanker has been giving clean drinking water to families and volunteers in Spencer, NE area for the past week. They draw the water from a supply in Pickstown, SD which is about 25 miles away. A local farm family uses their tractor to pull the tanker. In the photo the Spencer Fire Department is using their dumper truck to extract the water from the tanker and push water into the Spencer water tower. This makes water available to homes and businesses in the community. Spencer is one of many towns that was severely damaged from flood waters. OGT is grateful to be able to be apart of this process and help get clean drinking water to those in need! We recently received enough donations to purchase another tanker which should be delivered to the Norfolk warehouse today! Thank you OGT supporters!
