A great way to help hurricane victims is through Orphan Grain Train. Thrivent Financial will double contributions for Orphan Grain Train through Thrivent’s website. Orphan Grain Train is one of eight organizations eligible for this matching program. Thrivent is offering to match up to $3 million for donations to these agencies. This opportunity runs until the $3 million match is met or until December 31, 2017, whichever comes first. Go to www.Thrivent.com, click on Hurricane Harvey Relief and choose Orphan Grain Train to make your online donation. You do not have to be a Thrivent member to take advantage of this program, but all donations have to be made online through Thrivent’s website. What a wonderful way to double your impact for those in desperate need in Texas.
Right now Orphan Grain Train is shipping hygiene kits, underwear, socks, tennis shoes, diapers, non-perishable food, cleaning supplies, tarps, pry bars, wheelbarrows and generators to the affected areas. If you prefer to send a check directly to Orphan Grain Train the address is Orphan Grain Train, P. O. Box 1466, Norfolk, NE 68702. You may also donate on line at www.ogt.org, but then there are no matching funds from Thrivent. Thank you.
